SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Fuccillo Automotive Group donated $12,000 to Willow Field Elementary School, a part of the Liverpool Central School District, at a presentation on Thursday, Aug. 11 at the school’s playground. The donation will support the school’s ongoing project to create a new, fully accessible playground in order to better accommodate its 485 students between kindergarten and sixth grade.
“A safe and reliable playground can have a ‘HUGE’ impact on keeping kids active,” said Billy Fuccillo, president, Fuccillo Automotive Group. “We are excited to have been able to support Willow Field Elementary on this project and help meet the needs of all students and the community.”
Phase 1 of the project was completed in June 2015 and included the installation of eight swings, a Lunar Burst Aeronet climber and PlayBooster playsystem with a slide. In addition, the new playground includes two ramps and a molded bucket swing and follows American with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines.
Fuccillo’s donation will support the second and final phase of the project to extend the PlayBooster structure and add an assortment of stand-alone pieces. Phase 2 is expected to be completed in June 2017.
Willow Field Elementary is located on Route 31 in Liverpool across from Fuccillo Kia of Clay and Fuccillo Nissan.
