The Sun Shade Project

We have funded and shaded multiple playgrounds in the Baton Rouge area and learned quite a bit in the process. We are currently not funding any more shade projects, but will have a resource guide for anyone looking to shade their community, park, neighborhood, school or residential playgrounds. Until the guide is ready, please email us and we can share with you what we learned before shading a playground.
