This weekend, the organizers of the Joey’s Park playground build will collect hundreds of tools needed for the project and store them in a locked trailer located outside the Winn Brook Elementary School at Cross Street and Waterhouse Road.
“Next week, the first wave of volunteers will begin building elements of the new playground,” explains Diane Miller co-chair of the Friends of Joey’s Park.
“Whether you have a fully-stocked workshop or a backyard shed, chances are you have something we can use”.
So what's on the list: everything from orbital jigsaws to pencil sharpeners to 10x10 pop up tents. All items loaned to the Joey’s Park build will be labeled, stored in the locked shed and returned in the condition received. Anything that breaks will be replaced.

You can drop off tools in the Winn Brook School parking lot on Saturday, Sept. 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 22 from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“You’ll be putting your tools in goods hands, for a good cause," says Ellen Schreiber, co-chair of the Friends of Joey’s Park.
“We’re going to have an amazing playground in just a few short weeks.”
