Deer Lodge Medical Center, working with its community partners, is moving forward with the community playground build the week of June 22nd– June 28th. We need your help!

We are tasked with securing 70 volunteers per day, per shift! Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner will be provided each day, with many of our local businesses sponsoring meals. Daycare will also be available each evening from 5-8pm and all day on Saturday and Sunday. The Deer Lodge Community Playground would not be possible without you and your fellow community members. Please take a moment to review and complete the Phase 1 Volunteer sign-up below. Keep in mind that we have volunteer roles for a wide range of skill sets – building experience is not necessary!

In addition, we have included a video of a similar community built playground in Ojai, California.
