200 Volunteers + 6 Hours = 1 New Playground!


Over 200 volunteers from the CarMax Foundation, United Way, the Mack Road Partnership and KaBOOM! built a brand new playground in just six hours! Thank you to all of the dedicated volunteers who braved the rainy weather to build a vibrant community gathering space. We could not have done it without your support!

Now, over 500 children in the Mack Road community have a safe place to play and parents and the community have a vibrant neighborhood gathering place.

This project is among 30 playgrounds The CarMax Foundation and KaBOOM! will build across the country by the end of 2015. The CarMax Foundation provided the majority of the funding for the playground through its national partnership with KaBOOM!, supporting The Foundation’s commitment to furthering the cause of children’s healthy living.

Thank you to the CarMax Foundation and KaBOOM! for bringing this fantastic opportunity to Sacramento and thank you for choosing to partner with United Way and the Mack Road Partnership!

See all the action!
