Where Angels Play Foundation – Founded by Bill Lavin, with a construction team made up of volunteers predominantly led by New Jersey Firefighters, the Where Angels Play Foundation to has built 47 playgrounds to date, 14 of which are located in [their] home state of New Jersey. Inspired by tragic events of 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, and the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, Where Angels Play has found a beautiful way to honor young children who have left us too soon.
Each playground represents the personality and influence of the angel and provides a place of joy for the family and the community. Lavallette, NJ has agreed to partner with Where Angels Play and provide a fantastic, peaceful location along the Jersey shore.
Beginning next Tuesday, September 25th, the Where Angels Play Foundation will begin constructing a playground in honor of Brendan in Lavallette, NJ. On Wednesday, September 26th, all volunteers are being asked to arrive no earlier than 9am at Jacobsen Park, Bay Boulevard & Kerr Ave, Lavallette. There will be a short groundbreaking ceremony at 10am. Most of the construction will be completed by sundown! Where Angels Play will be hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony at 11am on Sunday, September 30th, all are welcome to join!
