Every day, the David Posnack JCC enriches lives by connecting people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Yet there is so much more we want to do to make a difference in the lives of thousands – and you can help. Thanks to a generous $100,000 grant, we have the ability to touch the hearts of our special needs community in ways we never have before. But there's a catch:
The grant requires matching funds, and we must raise an additional $100,000 by December 31, 2016 to keep the dream of a beautiful new Splash Pad alive.
For many special needs children, the sensory input provided by a Splash Pad is nothing less than transformative. Kids who are often withdrawn come alive as they delight in the cascading showers and water jets. Nerves fall away as joy takes over, while at the same time, gross motor, social and emotional intelligence skills are developed. The Splash Pad is educational, enlivening – and an escape. It seems so simple, yet it means so much to special needs children and their families.
Once installed, the Splash Pad will delight both special needs and typical children in the J's award-winning early childhood, after-school and camp programs, not to mention the membership-at-large. For many it will simply be a lot of fun – for others, nothing less than life-changing.
But we must act fast. December 31 is just around the corner, and without your support our ability to provide the children with a suitable Splash Pad will be significantly reduced. $100,000 is all that we need to transform a dream into reality. Please – click here to help us meet this goal. On behalf of all of the children whose lives will be impacted, we thank you.
The Turf field stadium project will provide a state-of-the-art field that will serve soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, flag football and softball/baseball. The field will be surrounded by a running/walking track as well as stadium seating and lights. It will attract youth and adults from all over as we will be one of the only South Florida community centers with this type of field.
Also, as part of the project we will add four lit tennis courts that will give us a total of nine courts. We will be able to host USTA tournaments and increase our tennis academy and adult leagues.
We will also add three more soccer fields to be used for lessons and by our preschool, after-school and camp programs.
