Two Cranberry community groups are teaming up again for familiar project.
The Cranberry Township Community Chest is once again partnering with Cranberry Community Uniting People (CUP) to complete renovations on the Kids Castle Playground in Community Park.
As the 2013 Cranberry Township Community Chest Project of the Year, the playground in Community Park replaced the existing wooden Playtime Palace with state-of-the-art equipment and a past, present, and future theme. While the facility itself was an incredible upgrade for recreation offerings in Cranberry, it also served as a great way to bring the community together. More than 300 volunteers built the area from the ground up.
Cranberry CUP was the presenting sponsor for that project as it adhered to the group’s mission of bettering the community.
Since then, Cranberry CUP has shifted focus to supporting and encouraging individuals and families facing hardship, including those battling serious illness. To date, the group has raised more than $2 million, with a benefactor family chosen each year.
After nine years of heavy use, Kids Castle needs some royal treatment, and Cranberry CUP is once again stepping up to help. As 2022 CTCC Fun-Raising Project, renovations will refresh the play area and make it safer for parents and children. New features will also be added.
