Donations to Project IMPACT Phase I for the Rice Park Playground are Nearing Goal!
Support for Project IMPACT Helps Our Community Thrive
The Granite Falls Area Community Foundation is now in its final push to raise the last of the funds needed for the purchase and installation of a new playground for Rice Park. After several months of determined fundraising, the GFACF is only $28,057 away from meeting its goal. The foundation is hoping to raise the remaining amount through additional donations rather than taking from the funds that the GFACF uses to award grants to qualifying non-profit organizations in the Granite Falls area.
While the initial goal for Project IMPACT was to have the new playground purchased and installed this fall, the GFACF was notified by the provider that manufacturing delays as well as supply chain issues will impact the delivery timeline of the equipment. That delay means that the equipment will not be available until late fall or early winter which will push the build out to next spring, as the poured rubber surface under the equipment needs temperatures above 50 degrees.
