On January 10, Faith Lutheran Church presented a check for $8,243.43 to Wohlwend Elementary to help the school build a new playground. The new playground will be specially constructed so children of all abilities can use and enjoy it.

Karin Jackson, who helped coordinate the fundraising drive by Faith Lutheran, said, “We put out a call on Facebook, we raised some money among our families, we invited friends in the community as well as at church to do that with us. We didn’t want to meet our goal, we wanted to surpass our goal.” Kay Bach, Life Group Mission Coordinator for the church, added, “It’s all about relationships. We have 50 Life Groups and they mobilize throughout the community. We go wherever the needs are.” 

Fundraising for the new Wohlwend playground is continuing. The school hopes to break ground in about a year.
