The National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors-Tennessee Valley chapter presented a check for $4,500 to representatives of the John Mark Stallings Special Needs Accessible Playground (S.N.A.P.) at NAIFA’s Sept. 27 regular meeting. The donation was the proceeds from the annual charity golf tournament Aug. 13 at Burningtree Country Club.
NAIFA is one of many organizations that have repeatedly donated funds during the six-year drive to complete the three-phase facility in Hartselle. The playground serves children of all ages and abilities and is specifically designed and built in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, to serve an estimated 1,700 challenged children within Morgan County.
Already completed are the swing area (Phase I), the Splash Pad (Phase II) and a pavilion (the first increment of Phase III). The second increment of Phase III, the grand entrance, is nearing completion.The main playground, the final increment of Phase III, is expected to begin in the spring of 2013, depending upon availability of funds. This project relies entirely upon donations of money, time and effort.
