The Doris Hoffman Early Learning Center received a grant from the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The DNR awards grants for playground surfacing made from re-purposed scrap tire materials. This allows us to utilize materials that would otherwise take up valuable space in landfills, and instead create a safe and accessible place for play. The $30,000 grant will enable approximately 3,000 square feet to have this special rubberized surfacing that will allow easy access for students of all abilities. A HUGE thank you to the Department of Natural Resources and the MVR-III Board of Education for supporting this grant!
