Volunteers help build Perry Elementary School's playground

More than 100 volunteers got out their shovels and gloves this morning.
 
Community members lent a hand at Perry Elementary School today.
 
Starting at 8:30 this morning, volunteers worked to build the school's new playground.
 
Several fundraisers and grants made the new playground possible.
 
"It's very exciting to finally see it come together. We've all been hoping and working very hard. The students are super excited and up until this point it's just been a fantasy and to see it actually come together is really a dream come true," coordinator Jackie Bull said.
 
Perry Elementary School won a 15-thousand dollar Kaboom grant from the Dr. Pepper/Snapple group to buy playground equipment.
 
Students raised more than 45-thousand dollars on top of that.
 
Bull says the playground is the only within a mile, and it's important local kids have a safe place to play.
