KaBOOM! It's a New Playground!

KaBOOM! and Biogen Idec are teaming up to bring a whole new look to our backyard! On September 20th, there will be brand new equipment, brand new murals, brand new games, and brand new mulch to save us from the skinned knees!

We couldn't be more thankful to these generous groups for the outdoor transformation, but they can't do it alone. We need the entire EPH community to help us make this a reality, and there are several ways you can help. We need volunteers for building, coordination, donations, and specialized services. Please let us know if you can be part of this wonderful day by filling out the brief form below, or you can just give us a call!

Thanks, and we'll see you on build day!
