Opportunity to volunteer to make Jonathan's Dream come true again!

We will be able to accommodate ~50 volunteers/day for 3 days of community building (plus 25 volunteers/day for 1 day of community planting). This is much fewer volunteers than were able to participate in the original Jonathan's Dream community build in 1996 when more than 1,000 volunteers participated in a 20+ day community build (this is because this time the playground equipment is manufactured off site and then volunteers put it together like an 'Erector' set). 

Thank you for understanding as we work to coordinate what it takes to build/plant Jonathan's Dream this time. If you are interested in volunteering, you will be asked to complete a simple application. To receive this application via email, please send an email to Debbie at

Here are the potential ways you can help.

  1. Community Build - 9/8, 9/9, or 9/10 (3-day community build - 9 am to 5 pm each day). Limited to ~25 handy people/construction professionals plus 25 people (over 16 years of age). Complete
  2. Community Planting Day - 10/1 - 9 am to 5 pm
  3. Plan and Host Fundraisers - at local restaurants or stores - any time.
  4. Grand Opening Family Fun Activities - 10/22 at 12:30 pm
  5. Host/Sponsor a Jonathan's Dream Play Club Day - starting next year.
  6. Bake homemade goodies at home with your children and drop them off at the volunteer registration table - 9/8, 9/9, 9/10 and/or 10/1 between 11 am to 2 pm. Complete

Thank you for your interest in Jonathan's Dream.
