Public Service Campaigns
Since 2000, the Academy’s annual volunteer build project—the award-winning Safe and Accessible Playground Build program in partnership with KaBOOM!—has provided an opportunity to visibly support playground safety and give something back to the communities we serve by helping with the construction of a safe and wheelchair-accessible play structure for children.
The 2016 playground build in the Orlando area—where the Academy first kicked off the playground build program in 2000—will be the AAOS’s 17th playground build.
This year, the Academy will be partnering with City of Kissimmee, Community Vision, Central Avenue Elementary School, organizers from KaBOOM! and the community will join forces on Tuesday, March 1, to give area kids a new playground at the School. The design is based on children’s drawings created at a special design event in December.
