Aspen Logistics Pursues Playground Project

Aug. 30, 2010
Aspen Logistics, Inc., a 3PL, will send two representatives to help build a playground in Atlanta, Georgia, as part of an annual charity event. The Home Depot Foundation, along with its partners, suppliers and the nonprofit Kaboom organization, as well as the YMCA, put together this year’s event.

More than 300 volunteers will attempt to build a state-of-the-art 2,500 square foot playground in one day—on September 23rd.

Aspen, as a supplier to the Home Depot’s logistics network, was invited to partake in this year’s project in Atlanta.

“This is an opportunity to give back in a great way - to participate where local communities financially can’t,” says Chris Ticknor, Aspen’s head of Marketing and overseer of their charitable efforts.

The Bill Lucas YMCA’s goal for this project is to create an outdoor educational learning environment and an interactive space for children to play. The existing playground is more than thirty years old and no longer meets the needs of the children at the site.
