Volunteer to Help Build Auburn’s Newest Playground at Brannan Park Oct. 17 or 19

The City of Auburn and The Auburn Food Bank are teaming up with KaBOOM! and Delta Air Lines to build a new playground at Auburn’s Brannan Park. The playground was designed by Auburn’s own kids and community members and getting ready for construction (see below). In a unique effort of a true community-lead playground from design to construction, the Auburn community is being asked to come together and help build this playground in conjunction with a team of volunteers from Delta Air Lines on Oct. 17 & 19.

In total, over 100 volunteers are needed to help bring it to completion and especially on Oct. 17 to prepare the site for building. Volunteers do not have to be trained, skilled or have any special tools; they just need to be enthusiastic, energetic, and willing to work while having fun!

Below are the ways that you, your family, community group or business can be involved:

  • Site Prep Volunteer - Thursday, Oct. 17 from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

  • Build Captains -Thursday, Oct. 17 from 12:30 - 1:30 PM for a training session & Build Day on Saturday, Oct. 19 from 6:30 AM - 4:00 PM
