01 Mar Klondyke Community Playground Project
Having spent most of her childhood in various housing projects, Charlotte Street Computers’ CEO Jennifer Mayer has a special place in her heart for the children and families of Asheville’s housing communities.
During a visit to Montford’s Klondyke neighborhood in 2009 to spread the word about an Easter Egg-Hunt and Fun Day she organizes each year, Jennifer noticed that the community’s only outdoor playground consisted of little more than a slide and some wood chips.
Jennifer immediately spearheaded an initiative to install a new play space for the Klondyke children, enlisting the help of the Asheville Design Center and the YMI Cultural Center. Together we are making great strides towards this goal. To date, Charlotte Street Computers has raised over $1000 for this project through the sales of tickets to select private performances of Asheville Community Theatre Mainstage productions.
While we are proud of what we’ve raised thus far, we now look to the community at large and humbly ask for your support in funding this joint project.
