City of Corona Receives $50,000 From Kompan, Inc. for Playgrounds
Corona, CA – Kompan, Inc. has announced that the City of Corona is a recipient of a $50,000 matched funding grant for the installation of an inclusive playground at Lincoln Park, where children of all abilities will be able to play together.
The inclusive playground will be the first of its kind in Corona and is being made possible through a partnership between Kompan, the City of Corona, and the Corona Parks Foundation (CPF), a non-profit organization. Since 1993, CPF has been raising funds to enhance the quality of life in the City by promoting and providing parks and recreation amenities and programs for citizens of all ages and have committed $50,000 in matching funds for the Lincoln Park playground.
Now in its second year, the Kompan grant program provides funding to help organizations install inclusive play spaces in the communities they serve. Each year, five applicants are selected for the grant. Corona is the first grant recipient in the state of California.
“Corona has been in need of facilities that provide the opportunity for everyone to play together, regardless of age or physical ability,” said David Montgomery-Scott, Library & Recreation Services Director. “Equipment such as that offered by Kompan will help fill that need. Corona, in partnership with the Corona Parks Foundation and Kompan, is absolutely thrilled to finally be able to bring an inclusive playground to our residents.”
The City of Corona would like to thank CPF for its commitment to this effort and the Victress Bower School for Exceptional Children, Peppermint Ridge Care Facilities, and the Corona Rotary Club for their support in the pursuit of grant funding.
