The play space build featured more than 150 volunteers, community leaders and educational activities for children performed by United Way partners Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) and the University of the Incarnate Word Athletics.
The play space will provide quality, interactive opportunities for play for all children attending middle school in the city of Uvalde going forward.
“Nearly 1,000 individuals from throughout the entire country contributed to our United with Uvalde fund,” Chris Martin said, CEO of United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County. “We have invested every penny of that back into this community. We are honored to be able to have an impact on this community.”
This play space was one of the proposals selected by United Way of San Antonio to use funds from the $1.8 million United with Uvalde fund.
In total, United Way of San Antonio has invested the entire $1.8 million fund into mental and behavioral health services in the Uvalde community.
