YIELD Project
Thanks to all of the community support, the YIELD students have nearly met their fundraising goal to renovate Prairie Playground!

In addition to staining the playground, numerous repairs need to be made to the equipment. If enough funds are raised, the group will also purchase engineered wood mulch, an ADA-approved fall surface material.
 
Students are collecting monetary donations through the end of December and will complete the updates this spring. If you'd like to donate toward the project, please send donations to the Chamber of Commerce (9 N Federal Ave, Mason City) and note “YIELD project” in the memo. Thank you for your support!

Thank you to all who have donated and to our media partners for helping us spread the word!
