Community Toy Box
Organization Sponsor: Sudbury & District Health Unit
In our community we developed a community toy box. The idea was to increase opportunity for physical activity for all children.( regardless of anything). We chose skating this winter as a pilot activity as we have access to frozen ice surfaces. Community partners donated space/ time and people to collect the skates, the city provided snow plowing/ maintenance of the lake surface, people translated information, posters were made and distributed and children came to play. There was / is no charge for the skates or the lake skating. It is hoped that we can expand this concept to include "gently used" running shoes in the spring.
