Mill Creek Orthodontics donates to all-inclusive playground
FLUVANNA COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- On Monday, the Lake Monticello Community Foundation received a big donation toward creating an all-inclusive playground.
The goal of the playground is to make sure all kids with all abilities can play together.
The Fluvanna County Public Schools division has at least 130 students at Lake Monticello with special needs.
This will also benefit parents and guardians with mobility issues.
Dr. Markus Niepraschk’s donation has doubled what the foundation had already raised.
"I'm hoping that others in the community will follow suit and help make this project a success," he said.
The foundation will kick off its $100,000 fund drive this Thursday at 9 a.m. at Lake Monticello Lafayette Park. It is looking to start renovating the playground next spring.
