With budget cuts and a long list of high priority items, many schools have to make tough decisions on where to spend their money. Unfortunately the majority of the time school playgrounds are often neglected when it comes to much needed repairs and updates. This is why SAF-HOLLAND has partnered with Holland Public Schools, located near our Holland facility, to provide much needed improvements to the playground’s basketball courts.
At Holland Heights School, construction began around mid-late summer, with the removal of four of the six remaining basketball hoop supports and backboards that were all in various degrees of degeneration. Most of the hoops were not secure, while a few of the hoops were missing nets. In addition there was only a faint trace of the original court lines. With SAF-HOLLAND’s donation, Holland Heights was able to add six brand new basketball hoops, along with repainting the lines that made up the on the courts.
Holland Heights’ playground is not only used by the school, but is open to the public as well. SAF-HOLLAND’s contribution to update the playground’s basketball courts helped improve the play time of the kids in school, and also impacted the lives of those in the community who use the playground as well.
