A more inclusive pre-K tot lot is coming to the Nannie J. Lee Recreation Center so children can play and explore.
This fully accessible playground will include a playhouse, meeting spaces, play mound/tunnel, tactile walls, and so much more!
The refreshed playground will be near the Ruthanne Lodato Memorial Playground (which was completed in 2015), helping to create a larger and fuller playground experience. Components of the new playground will be named in honor of our dedicated Kelley Cares friend and volunteer, Tommy Knoernschild.
With the help of CVS Caremark (who generously donated $25,000), the Miracle League of Alexandria, and support from our community, we were able to build a fully inclusive and accessible playground at the Nannie J. Lee Center in Alexandria.
Kelley Cares is proud to have partnered with the City's Department of Recreation, Parks, and Cultural Activities (DRPCA) and the Miracle League of Alexandria, a private citizen group dedicated to the installation of a Miracle Field in Alexandria.
This multi-sensory room on wheels travels around the city providing opportunities for adults and children with mental and physical disabilities to explore an array of sensory activities.
In November 2006, the multi-sensory room was successfully completed and opened at the Lee Center in Alexandria, Virginia.
In June 2008, Kelley Cares used funds to purchase radio frequency wristbands and training from Project Lifesaver International.
Kelley Cares was happy to provide the Therapeutic Recreation Program with a new vehicle to assist them in providing safe means of transporting their participants.
Kelley Cares was proud to send the Bellefonte Wizards basketball team to the Virginia state championship game of the Special Olympics in style by securing vans for their transportation with a $1,000 contribution.
Four iPads and Apple TVs were donated to the Therapeutic Recreation Program to help supplement their programming needs in December of 2011.
