This is what you will be doing from the link above:
"KaBOOM! Playground Build - Playground Builder Every child should have a fun, safe place to play, even when they visit The Salvation Army. That is why we are working in partnership with KaBOOM! and Foresters to build a new playground at our Maplewood location. This is a one day build to complete the playground. There are jobs for people of all ages and abilities. Meals will be provided for volunteers. We are looking for 150 volunteers to assist on build day. The build will take place rain or shine."
