Last summer, nearly 150 volunteers from Lucasfilm, Industrial Light & Magic, ABC-TV, and Disney came together at the Booker T. Washington Community Center in San Francisco. Their mission was to construct a playground that would be any kid’s dream.
The initiative was organized in collaboration with KaBoom! As a non-profit organization that spans the United States, KaBoom! constructs playgrounds and emphasizes the importance of play in the lives of children.
Volunteers split up into teams, each taking different assignments as varied as mixing cement to building climbing walls and picnic tables. Andrew Martin from Industrial Light & Magic, described his task, “I assisted in the assembly of an activity panel with noisemakers as well as the assembly of the spiral slide.”
