Variety- the Children's Charity recently awarded Anawim Housing a grant for $10,000 that will go towards the building of a playground at our upcoming Legacy Project town homes. The playground will be located at 1521 6th Ave, where 5 new town homes are set to be built next spring of 2016. The playground will serve the children and families of Anawim, providing a place for children to play and members to come together as a community.
On September 29th, Anawim Housing staff accepted the grant at a check presentation that was given by Variety at the Fred Maytag II Scout Center in Des Moines.
