Let Them Be Kids

Let Them Be Kids is an all volunteer, non-profit organization created to build community capacity on the grassroots level, while building playgrounds, skate parks and fitness parks across Canada. These projects leave a legacy of community members who are inspired and better equipped to lay a strong foundation for a brighter tomorrow.

St. John Catholic Elementary School in Perth is a proud recipient of a 2010 Let Them Be Kids "Believe" Award! Every dollar raised by our community will be matched by Let Them Be Kids
to build a much needed playground at St. John's!

Perth Area Businesses Support Playground Build!

It's been a great week for St. John's Playground fundraising campaign, thanks to big-hearted contributions from local companies!

Two local Perth businesses, Barnabe's Your Independent Grocer and OzTREKK educational services, both became Rock Wall Challenge Donors through their generous $1,000 donations this week! Barnabe's is Perth local YIG grocery store, and OzTREKK assists Canadian post-secondary students in gaining admission to Australian universities.

Many other area businesses have expressed support for the new playground at St. John's, which will be open to all children in the community outside school hours, and we appreciate everyone's help and contributions! Stay tuned for future blogs about other generous donors in Perth's active and caring business community!
