Work at the site of The Andy Foundation playground has begun, as we prepare for the community build on September 28th. Pictured here is Jeremy Cotty of HomeCraft Contracting, a dedicated volunteer and generous supporter, as he unloads the selected playscape equipment upon delivery.

This September, The Andy Foundation will be building an inclusive playground at Pal-O-Mine, a not for profit equine assisted therapy center in Islandia. Pal-O-Mine provides services to youngsters with a variety of physical, cognitive and emotional challenges from all over Long Island, and The Andy Foundation has been an avid supporter of their outstanding efforts for more than a decade. The new playground will provide a wonderful, accessible recreation space for children of all abilities. This community build will involve more than a hundred volunteers, and will be our largest venture to date.
To help with the funding of this tremendous effort, we are offering several levels of corporate and personal sponsorships: Diamond ($25,000); Platinum ($10,000); Gold ($5,000); Silver ($2,500); and Bronze ($1,000). Sponsors will be recognized on a permanent sign at the entrance to the playground as well as in advertising, press releases, and social media. Sponsors are also welcome to join our volunteers at the playground build, where additional photo opportunities will be available. Sponsorship checks can be mailed to P.O. Box 7512, Garden City, New York 11530.
Pavers are available in three sizes, 4 x 8 - $150; 8 x 8 - $250; and 12 x 12 - $500. They make great anniversary and birthday gifts, wonderful family donations to a worthy cause, and beautiful memorials.
