Genisys Credit Union matched donations up to $5,000 for Huron-Clinton Metroparks Giving Tuesday Campaign to build an accessible playground for all ages and abilities at Kensington Metropark Maple Beach.
“Genisys is proud to support its community partners in their endeavors to create an inclusive and accessible community for all,” said Jackie Buchanan, President / CEO of Genisys Credit Union. “We are excited to see the playground come to life and provide plenty of fun opportunities for children and adults of all abilities."
The playground will be a fun, accessible, and inclusive play area that will feature rubber safety surfacing, sensory-friendly equipment, transfer-stations onto the playscape, spaces for quiet independent play, dignity landings on slides, and much more. Construction is expected to be completed in fall 2020.
“The Metroparks are continually finding ways to make all of our parks more accessible and each feature of this new playground was carefully selected to meet the needs and abilities of all explorers for specific reasons,” said Amy McMillian, Director of Huron-Clinton Metroparks. “The Metroparks is extremely grateful for the generosity of Genisys Credit Union and for their partnership on this year’s Giving Tuesday Campaign. Their continued support is helping us move forward with a really exciting project.”
At Genisys, the credit union aims to improve their communities by promoting, supporting, and volunteering in the spirit of giving back, which is the goal of Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is an international day of charitable giving at the beginning of the holiday season that encourages individuals and organizations to donate their time, or dollars, or talent, and much more in an effort to give back.
Further donations can be made out to the Metroparks Foundation at 13000 High Ridge Drive, Brighton MI 48114 or made online here.
