A sad little play area before we fixed it up.

Fifty volunteers, lead by Craig Beckner (planning, project managing, and building stuff), descended on Monument Community First 5 Center in Concord to transform a dirt lot into a vibrant outdoor classroom and learning garden for low-income preschoolers and their families. In simple ways, we’re looking out for one another. Let’s uplift our neediest neighborhoods. Pay it forward. Change the world for the better. Little by little.

Monument Community First 5 Center provides free parenting and enrichment classes for families with children up to age five.
