Yokohama Tire teamed with local partners and volunteers to build a new KaBOOM! playground at Oak View Park in Huntington Beach, Calif., on Feb. 27.
More than 2,500 local kids will benefit as approximately 250 volunteers from Yokohama, the City of Huntington Beach, Children’s Bureau and KaBOOM! worked together to build the brand-new, eco-friendly playground in one day.
“A dream became a reality for thousands of happy kids,” says Alan Holtschneider, director of marketing, Yokohama. “For years to come, the new playground will be a fun, safe play area for children and their parents.”
This was the fourth playground collaboration with Yokohama and national non-profit KaBOOM!. The first three were built in San Juan Capistrano, Calif.; Rockland, Mass.; and West Point, Miss.
“It’s great to see the community come together for this extraordinary project that will benefit thousands of children of Huntington Beach,” says Erik Peterson, Huntington Beach mayor. “Many thanks to Yokohama Tire, Children’s Bureau and KaBOOM! for building this spectacular playground. The kids will love it.”
