Come shop for a cause!

Edson School is the largest school in the Kingston City School District, serving 450 kids from diverse socio-economic backgrounds.  70% of Edson families live at or below the poverty level.  Our playground has a basketball hoop, one playground structure, and a wide open field. Because of new safety protocols, the children aren’t allowed to play organized sports during recess. They play at different stations which offer certain organized activities from which they may choose. The kids report that they spend a lot of their recess period waiting on line for the monkey bars.

The Edson PTO is so close to having enough money to buy a swing set, and is working towards purchasing a new playground structure with two more sets of monkey bars, a ropes course, and other fun features.

Your auction donation will help us ensure that the approximately 100 students who use the playground at a time can share and enjoy the space more equitably and easily.
