Bozeman Kiwanis Sandbox Giveaway on June 1, 6 & 8th at 100 Acre Park
A local tradition! The Bozeman Kiwanis Club will provide 75 children’s sandboxes, built by club members, and given to families free of charge, sand included! We love sandboxes! They get our children outside, while socializing and developing creative and constructive skill sets.
The sandboxes will be distributed on the south side of the 100 Acre Park off Oak Street, west of 19th, in the parking lot near the sledding hill. Distribution will be on two Saturdays, June 1st and 8th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Thursday, June 6th from 5-7 p.m. The sandboxes are available on a first come, first served basis, until all are distributed. It is very important to bring a vehicle that can accommodate the 5’by 5’ wooden boxes and over 1,000 pounds of sand. It is highly recommended that you protect your vehicle with a tarp or drop cloth for transporting, as the sand is loose. Pick-up trucks or trailer are the best way to transport the boxes and sand. Most cars will not accommodate the box and sand. Sandboxes can be reserved for pickup. On the above days. Please email Heidi Pfeil at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone number, the day you are coming.
The Sandbox Project is one of many the Bozeman Kiwanis Club provides to give back to the community through various outreach programs. The sandboxes are made possible by the club with support from community donations. Other services the Bozeman Kiwanis provides to the community include: Local support is also provided for Eagle Mount Camp Braveheart, Big Sky Cancer Kids Spaghetti Feed, Hope for the Holidays, Kids in Crisis Backpacks, Fix-Up Festival, playground equipment, building park pavilions, Thrive, and others, including, Eliminate, which through Kiwanis International has made great strides to eliminate maternal neonatal tetanus.
