A Safe and Fun Outdoor Accessible Playground Area, Coming Soon for Harmony In Action!
With so many organizations to support in Windsor-Essex, it makes you wonder how one chooses. I have Director of Fundraising and Marketing, Anita Riccio-Spagnuolo, to thank for opening my eyes to Harmony in Action. I joined the Board of Directors a few short months ago to support the organization and assist in promoting the need for support to our community, but since then, my heart has taken to this cause in a big way.
Harmony In Action, located at 3335 Woodward Ave. in Windsor, Ontario across from the Walker Homesites Baseball Park just off Walker Road in the old St. Christophers Church building, is a local, non-profit organization that provides a fantastic day program for adults with special needs. Families in Windsor-Essex depend greatly on the program to help their loved ones build a feeling of accomplishment and self-worth. Harmony In Action ensures each participant is treated as an adult and creates an atmosphere that fosters friendships, respect, and dignity, with the presence of caring staff and volunteers, as they work to develop daily activities that target these goals. The Harmony In Action location was missing one thing! A safe and fun regular accessible outdoor playground area on site!
The Cris Kambouris, Real estate team, was present Tuesday, April 11, 2017, at the Harmony in Action ground-breaking ceremony for the long-awaited Accessible Playground, designed by Mark Jones of Playworld. I was so thrilled to see the great people involved including Bill Marra & other MPs Representatives, Windsor Police and the generous donors who truly made this project come to life. This project is a great cause to help wonderful people around Windsor-Essex County. We are very lucky to have establishments like Harmony in Action in Windsor.
I can’t wait to see everyone soon at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony! In the meantime, please like the Harmony In Action Facebook page and support them. Thank you!
