A local elementary school receives a brand new playground to promote healthy families.
More then 200 volunteers were on hand as part of an initiative put together by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas and Kaboom. The design of the playground is based on children's drawings and will have a new home at Daiches Elementary. Regional president, doctor Esteban Lopez says this new playground will not only benefit the school but also the community.
This event is part of blue cross blue shields healthy families initiative and this program has been going on for three years. This year Blue Cross Blue Shield has donated over 1.6 million dollars to different organizations.
