ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Rams are now accepting applications for the team’s 6th annual Playground Build and Community Improvement Project.
This year, the application process will again allow possible community improvement projects beyond the traditional playground build to allow the Rams to be able to respond to the community’s greatest needs.
The chosen applicant will receive funding for the project and will be joined by members of the Rams organization to participate in the playground build or community improvement project during the month of June.
In 2013, the Rams built a playground at Washington Elementary in the Normandy School District. The grant also included a new community garden, improvements within the school, a new swing set and a new outdoor basketball court. In 2012, the Rams traveled to Fairmont City, Ill and built the community’s first playground at the Fairmont City Library Center. In 2011, the Rams built a playground for Giant Steps, a special education school and therapy center for children on the autism spectrum. The 2010 playground build was with the St. Louis Public School District at Monroe eMints Academy. In 2009, the Rams built a playground at a community park in East St. Louis.
Applications are available here. Applications must be received by January 31, 2014.
