A brand new interactive play space was recently revealed at Morales Junior High School in Uvalde, Texas. The unveiling took place on Saturday and was met with excitement and anticipation from the local community. The project was made possible through a collaboration between the United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County, KABOOM!, and Uvalde C.I.S.D.
Morales Junior High School, being the only middle school in Uvalde, was selected as the site for this innovative play space. The goal of this project is to provide a fun and engaging environment for the students, encouraging physical activity and fostering their creativity. The play space includes various interactive elements that will surely capture the imaginations of the children.
Funding for the project came from the United with Uvalde fund, which was launched just one day after the tragic incident at Robb Elementary in May 2022. This fund has been instrumental in supporting initiatives that benefit the Uvalde community, and the interactive play space at Morales Junior High is one of the selected proposals to receive funding.
The construction of the play space was a collaborative effort involving more than 150 volunteers. Their dedication and hard work have brought this project to fruition, ensuring that the children at Morales Junior High will have a safe and enjoyable place to play.
In addition to the play space project, the United Way of San Antonio has allocated the entire $1.8 million fund to support mental and behavioral health services in the Uvalde community. This investment reflects the organization’s commitment to addressing the needs of the community and providing essential resources to improve the well-being of its residents.
