Eleven Wabash men and women worked together successfully Saturday afternoon to spread more than 17 tons of wooden mulch chips and improve two playground areas at The Villages in Indianapolis. The Villages provides services such as, Foster Care, Adoption, quality Child Care and Early Childhood Development Services at this Indianapolis location.  The state-of-the-art Center also provides Child Care Services to children six weeks old to kindergarten age.

This is the eight year in a row that we have completed various projects at The Villages including painting interior walls, spreading mulch throughout the playground area and painting the playground equipment.  Denise Ferrell, onsite Director at The Villages stated that our work over the last eight years has saved The Villages well over $15,000 and that these savings will help those that are less fortunate to continue to utilize the child care services that The Villages are able to offer.
