Creating a vibrant, safe playground is more than just installing equipment. At Sav'd, each project is a collaborative effort that involves detailed planning, community engagement, and a commitment to creating positive change. Join us as we take you behind the scenes to explore how a Sav'd community project comes to life.

The Vision: Transforming Playgrounds, Transforming Communities

Sav'd's mission is to revitalize playgrounds, creating spaces where children can play, learn, and grow. These playgrounds also serve as community hubs, fostering unity and resilience. Every project starts with this vision, guiding the process from start to finish.

Step 1: Community Engagement
  1. Listening Sessions: Sav'd begins by hosting listening sessions with local residents to understand their needs and desires. These sessions ensure that the playground reflects the community's unique character and requirements.
  2. Surveys and Feedback: Gathering feedback through surveys helps Sav'd design a playground that meets the community's needs and preferences.
Step 2: Planning and Design
  1. Collaborative Design: Sav'd works with local architects and designers to create a blueprint for the playground. Community input is integrated into the design, ensuring it is both functional and appealing.
  2. Sustainability Focus: Using eco-friendly materials and sustainable practices, Sav'd ensures that the playground is safe and environmentally responsible.
Step 3: Fundraising and Support
  1. T-Shirt Sales: Proceeds from Sav'd's faith-inspired apparel help fund the playground projects. Each purchase directly supports the mission.
  2. Donations and Grants: Sav'd also relies on donations and grants to cover the costs of materials and construction.
Step 4: Building the Playground
  1. Community Volunteers: Local residents are invited to participate in the construction, fostering a sense of ownership and pride in the project.
  2. Professional Oversight: Sav'd ensures that all work is supervised by professionals to guarantee safety and quality.
Step 5: The Grand Opening
  1. Community Celebration: Once the playground is complete, Sav'd hosts a grand opening event to celebrate the new space. This event brings the community together, marking the beginning of a new chapter for the neighborhood.
  2. Ongoing Engagement: Sav'd continues to engage with the community, encouraging them to use and maintain the playground.
