Thank You to Our Sponsors!!

We would like to send our deepest thanks to all of our sponsors.  We could not do what we do without you!  The support we receive from the community is amazing.  We are blessed every day to live is such a caring and wonderful place. We have not yet made our goal so will continue to raise funds for the playground.  So, if you have not had a chance to donate, no worries.  You can donate today at :

It’s Time 2 Play – Woodville Park Playground Fundraiser

Update on our “It’s Time 2 Play!” Fundraiser!!  Park Partners, Inc. has received over $5,000 in local business sponsorships from over 15 companies in Gloucester County. Park Partners, Inc. is still hitting the streets and banging on doors to continue raising funds for a community playground at Woodville Park.  This playground will be for adults and children of all abilities.  

Please join our efforts.  It’s time for our kids to have a playground!  Let’s keep kids active and outdoors.  To make contributions easier on the budget, we are accepting monthly pledges for the next year that will allow you to spread out your donation. To receive the full benefit of your sponsorship, donations should be pledged by March 5th, 2018.
