Please sponsor Snug Play as a way to bring play, creativity and innovation to the local children who receive so many vital services from the Walnut Cove Public Library, where this play equipment will be housed. Sung Play equipment can be stored inside or outside and it does not require any installation. Which means, as soon as we raise the money to buy it, kids can start playing four weeks later!
