(WARRENSBURG, Mo.) — The Warrensburg Schools Foundation recently donated $25,000 to help renovate the Ridge View Elementary School playground.
Funds for the playground were raised through the Partners in Progress campaign, according to a news release. Lead donors to the campaign were JE Dunn Construction Company, the family of former Ridge View Principal Dorothy Stockton Sims and the Ridge View PTO. Funds were also raised from auction raffles and games, the 2013 Color Run, and the Alumni and Friends golf tournaments.
“This presentation is the capstone to a multi-year campaign which included the participation of many supporters,” said Bob Lotspeich, president of the Warrensburg Schools Foundation, in a written statement. “We are excited to be able to make this donation and see the work begin on the renovations to the playground just in time for a new group of students to enjoy.”
