Bozeman Kiwanis Club will provide 80 children’s sandboxes, built by the club, and given to families free of charge, sand included!
A local annual tradition! The Bozeman Kiwanis Club will provide 80 children’s sandboxes, built by the club, and given to families free of charge, sand included! The sandboxes will be distributed on the south side of the 100 acre Park off Oak Street, west of 19th, on two Saturdays in June 2nd and 9th, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Thursday, June 7, from 6-8 p.m. Sandboxes encourage our children to get outside, while socializing and developing creative and constructive skill sets. 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’ boxes and over 1,000 pounds of sand. A plastic liner is also included with the box. 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 are the best way to transport the boxes and sand. You may reserve a sandbox in advance for pickup, by going to emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, phone number and which day you plan to pickup.
The Sandbox Project is one of many the Bozeman Kiwanis Club provides to give back to the community through various outreach programs. Other projects include: Eliminate, which through Kiwanis International has made great strides to eliminate maternal neonatal tetanus. Local support is also provided for Eagle Mount Camp Braveheart, Hope and the Holidays, Kids in Crisis Backpacks, Fix-Up Festival, playground equipment for schools, park pavilions throughout the city, Thrive, and many others.
