Community donations encouraged to upgrade Sigsbee playground

Sigsbee Elementary playground

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - The Sigsbee playground is in need of an update according to the state, and that may come to life this summer with the community's help. 

The Grand Rapids Student Advancement Foundation and Michigan Economic Development Corporation announced a new crowdfunding campaign to help replace the Sigsbee communal playground. 

They kicked off the project with a generous donation from Lake Michigan Credit Union, and the groups hope to close the gap of $29,500 with the community donations by June 30. 

If the crowdfund reaches its goal by that date, the MEDC will award the project a matching grant.
