Park West Park and Playground Unveiled
Park West celebrated the official unveiling of the Michael Hurd, Jr. Memorial Park and Playground on Saturday, March 25, 2017 during a dedication ceremony. Hurd, who became the Park West general manager through SCS in 2014, had been working on a brand new park and playground for the Park West community for almost a year. It is a climber play set, including multiple slides, rock climber, swings and springer seat, spanning 3,455 square feet.
“Mike spent his career with SCS making great improvements to the Park West community. The impact he had on his residents is immeasurable,” explains current Park West general manager Jessica Shipman. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to relive his happiness and honor his legacy by finishing out the playground project and hosting this benefit event.”
Donation Drive for Local Nonprofit Benefitting Abused and Neglected Children
Park West partnered with Windwood Farm Home for Children in Awendaw, S.C. for the dedication ceremony. Established as a private nonprofit in 1985, Windwood Farm provides help, hope, and healing through behavioral, educational, and therapeutic interventions which enhance social functioning and well-being, ensures safety, and works to achieve positive permanency for children and families in the community.
Guests and community members compiled eight boxes’ worth of donated supplies, toiletries and games for the local nonprofit organization.
“At the dedication ceremony, many individuals made donations of money, gift cards, household items, and personal needs supplies for distribution to families who are struggling to provide a safe and nurturing home to their children,” explains Windwood Farm director Debbie McKelvey. “Having partners in large neighborhoods who are willing to respond to a call to action when our needs are great makes an incredibly positive impact.”
