We continue to raise money for our SPARK Park. The SPARK Park committee projects needs to raise at least $100,000 to create the kind of park Stevens Elementary and the community deserve. This would include creating fitness stations, outdoor learning areas and a play area for all to enjoy. Through SPARK, HISD, and Stevens Fundraising, we are a little over halfway to our goal, having raised $55,000.
SPARK Park is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) program through the City of Houston that helps public schools improve their community grounds. With SPARK Park and its alliance with Houston ISD, we have the opportunity to make major improvements to our outdoor areas. Vibrant school grounds stimulate economic growth, increase our property values, bolster school and community pride, and help curb crime.
We will continue our fundraising efforts in the Spring with monthly Cane’s Nights the last Wednesday of every month, a community garage sale in March, and a bingo night in May. Construction is set to begin in late May or early June with completion of the park in October of 2015.
You can make donations to Stevens’ SPARK Park at school or by going to sparkpark.org/donate and designate your donation for Stevens.
