JONESBORO – Four girls at Jonesboro Elementary School are coming together to make a change at their school.
They call themselves Four Girls with a Goal and their goal is to raise $50,000 for a new playground.
So far, the girls said, they have raised up to $5,000 through Facebook, fundraising at events and holding a penny war.
“It’s really exciting to do this and be a part of Four Girls with a Goal because we get to meet a lot of people and it’s just really fun,” one of the girls said. “We’re making a change because no one else would probably do this and get this far.”
The girls said the playground equipment they now have at school isn’t big enough for all the kids at recess. They are hoping to get a better one with slides, swings and monkey bars but could use some help.
Donations can be made by sending a check to the school made out to Jonesboro Elementary School or through the girls’ Facebook fundraiser.
