The students of Orange County Academy come from a diverse yet struggling and historically underserved community. These children deal with home life issues ranging from poor local drinking water to drug addiction and everything in between. Orange County Academy takes students who would be lost in the traditional system and gives them the education and care to thrive. The students current playground is old and falling apart around them. For Avalon Park Kiwanis to have the opportunity to provide these children a new playground would mean safer play time, a sense of community, and the freedom to be children.
