Volunteers Prep Compton Playground for Transformation

Saturday, Oct. 9, was the start of something big at our Compton Learning Center! Volunteers from Habitat for Humanity East Central Ohio and Republic Services cleaned up and removed old playground remnants from the lot in preparation of a complete reconstruction of a playground, picnic area, full-court basketball courts, an amphitheater, and more! Superintendent Talbert and Christen Sedmock, our Director of Alternative Programs, were there to thank the volunteers. Habitat was awarded a $100,000 National Neighborhood Promise grant from the Republic Services Charitable Foundation, 1 of only 11 projects selected across the country. It will partially pay for the project. We can’t wait for this to be completed for our SE families! Read more here:
