August 24, 2015: Starcom Builders began construction on Niu Valley’s playground. They started with a fence around the project and are clearing some keawe trees. Watch this space for continuous updates!

August 20, 2015: our community held a blessing at our Park in anticipation of construction starting tomorrow. We thought it appropriate to have our children be the groundbreakers for this long awaited project. As you can see, some are teenagers now, even though when we started, they were toddlers. Mahalo to Kaleo Paik for this special ceremony and to those who came to share our joy on this momentous occasion, including Jason Paloma from the HMSA Foundation that gave us $10,000, Lyla Berg, Irvin Higashi and Michele Nekota from the City and Ted Taketa from Starcom Builders.

December 9, 2014:
Our equipment is scheduled to ship on December 24th and we still need $5,000 in 2 weeks. Please kokua and consider giving the gift of play this Christmas for hundreds of children. Mahalo piha!
construction will start in January, 2015!

We still need donations, volunteers, and support! please help

Please sign up to be on Niu Valley Playground’s Project Team! We are being featured for 2 weeks on the KaBOOM! website but need to complete our on-line fundraising process by having Team Captains. Since the City won’t allow us to do a community build, this is to show KaBOOM! our support for this project and possibly get a few donations. Please follow the instructions below. Mahalo!
As you may know, we are in great need of a playground for our community because all kids deserve a place for healthy play and exercise. We are pulling together a planning team and would like to invite you to get involved. Niu Valley Playground really needs someone dependable to head our each of our teams as a Captain, and we immediately thought of you!
To ensure the success of our project we need a variety of skills and talents on our planning committee. You can do everything from plan out activities to involve children in the build process to working with the media to secure press, and of course there is always the need for fundraising support.
Learn more about our project and sign up for your favorite team.
Here are the steps to become a Team Member:
• Step 1: Join KaBOOM!. Use the Sign Up button at the top of every page.
• Step 2: Go to Niu Valley Playground.
• Step 3: Click the Volunteer button.
• Step 4: Select the Join option on the right.
• Step 5: Select the Team you would like to become a part of and then describe why you would be a good fit for that team. If you are interested in more than one team, note that as well. The project’s leader will have the final determination on which team you are assigned to.
