Lajee Center Grand Opening of Community Space

On June 6th, Lajee Center held it’s grand opening for the community space and playground built by PfP.

We are very proud of the work being done by Lajee and honored to contribute this safe space for families and children.  Susan, a PfP board member, was there and had an opportunity to speak with some of the children, all of whom expressed joy at having a place to play and asked for “more climbing and swinging things.”

Indeed, PfP will be adding more to this site in the coming months.

Another Way To Give, Without Giving!

Just designate PfP as your 501c3 nonprofit organization of choice, and Amazon will donate a portion of your what you buy there to PfP.

Play, while it cannot change the external realities of children’s lives, can be a vehicle for children to explore and enjoy their differences and similarities and to create, even for a brief time, a more just world where everyone is an equal and valued participant.
