The Pilot Club of South Brunswick Islands recently donated $1,300 to Brunswick County Parks and Recreation to purchase two handicap swings.
The Pilot Club of South Brunswick Islands works to improve the lives of those affected by brain-related disorders, such as Alzheimer’s, dementia and autism.
“The club formed a committee to address different issues in the county and find out ideas of what projects would be helpful,” Jordan Anderson said. “We chose five organizations throughout the county to donate to and adding swings to the public parks seemed like a perfect fit because it would impact a lot of people in the area.”
The Pilot Club chose Lockwood Folly Park in Supply and Northwest Park in Leland as the project parks.
“I really appreciate when local groups take an interest by investing in our parks system,” said Jim Pryor, director of parks and recreation.
“The Pilot Club’s donation will provide handicap accessible swings at Lockwood Folly Park and Northwest Park. The handicap accessible swings have proven to be very popular and it is my hope through this partnership that we can have them represented in all of our playgrounds in the near future.”
