Companies pitch-in to fix Piti playground

by Michele Catahay

Guam - Several local companies came together today to assemble playground sets for the children in Piti. According to general manager for Home Depot Rhette Garon, a group of companies came together to give back to the community just in time for Christmas. Those companies include Home Depot, Chugash, Pepsi and Matson, along with other companies.

Garon said it took two months of planning and actual construction to finish the project. "What it is was that a playground set was donated by the Navy about two years ago. And they just didn't have the resources to install it. So you're talking about 15 to 20 pieces of equipment laying here for two years because they didn't have anyone to install it. But when it was brought to us, we moved pretty quickly," Garon said.

The playground was completely assembled by the end of the day.
