Over the last few months, we here at New Hope have been in the process of
up-dating this space to accommodate the needs of the diversified ages of children that we see. With the assistance of Wendy Tittsworth of Just So Decorating a design plan was created (Thanks Ms. Wendy for our new theme) and with grant funds from Ronald McDonald Charities, and from Alcoa Walmart, the transformation of the playroom began.
Volunteer painters from K12, Maryville College, and Woodmen of the World gave their time and energy to refresh the space with a new coat of paint. Woodmen of the World also donated a Smart TV as a way for pre-teens and teenagers to feel more included in a space that they might see as "just for kids."
We're going to miss our old playroom that holds thirteen years worth of memories, but we are excited to expand ourselves to fit the diverse group of kids that we host. Come check out our woodland critters, stress-relieving bean bag chairs, and fun Smart TV!
