Over the past several months, RVi’s own Austin Hicks has been working on The Real Estate Council’s (TREC) Young Guns annual service project. This year’s project involved the design of a new playground and outdoor amenities for the Bachman Lake Together Family Center. Located in a neighborhood where nearly 40 percent of the children live in poverty, the Center offers resources to help parents support their children’s development. Although the Center is now operating out of a newly constructed facility, the outdoor environment still left much to be desired.
In an effort to provide outdoor spaces for families to spend quality time together, the TREC team designed new play structures, a walking path, putting green, sound equipment, and garden planters. These improvements were funded by TREC’s annual Casino Night event, which raised $32,000 for the project earlier this year. The project culminates in a work day on August 13th, when the TREC team will put the finishing touches on outdoor space.
“Whether it is big or small, I hope we are able to have a positive impact on the kids and parents that come to the Bachman Lake Together Family Center and use these outdoor spaces," Austin said.
