Happy Birthday, KaBOOM!

by Samantha Jo Warfield

On Wednesday, the Corporation for National and Community Service joined First Lady Michelle Obama, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, Members of Congress and their spouses, along with AmeriCorps members and over 150 volunteers for the annual Congressional Day of Service event at a KaBOOM! event.

To celebrate its 15th Birthday, KaBOOM! organized a Washington, DC playground build – the 2000th of its kind – at SouthEast Public Charter School, a school with no playground equipment for its 480 students. Having previously joined KaBOOM! for a build, we knew we were in for a treat. These guys sure know how to put on an event!

We’ll have a full report next week, but for now we wanted to leave you with a few images:
