Center Township and Concerned Citizens Work Together on Adaptive Playground Equipment

Center Township of Clinton County is partnering on the initiative to place adaptive playground equipment in local parks with Concerned Citizens. Center Township will be
utilizing the Parks and Recreation fund to do the matching amount up to $20,000 for all donations through Dec 15, 2018. Gena Carson, local citizen, has been working on getting
adaptive equipment in local playgrounds and has taken on the role of raising funds with the local Facebook group Concerned Citizens. Gena finds this initiative to both be of
community benefit and one that will benefit the disability community. Gena has family members who have special needs and finds that sometimes this population can be one
that is forgotten. Center Township Trustee, Kevin Evans, has a degree in Special Education and can relate to this initiative. Evans taught both locally and in Southern Indiana. Evans stated, “It is important that we are uniting all members of our community and have an inclusive community, for all.” Center Township is encouraging local businesses and citizens to donate to this initiative to take advantage of the full match of $20,000. Donations need to be made locally at the City of Frankfort Clerks Office at Old Stoney into the City of Frankfort Adaptive Equipment Fund. Center Township will work with the City of Frankfort to determine the amount of funds made into the account and pay vendors directly for the equipment that will purchased for the local parks. A Special Thanks to Encompass, NHK, Horseshoe Association, FOP, and Bailey Trucking who have all provided to this great program.
