Carter’s Kids, a nonprofit founded by TV star Carter Oosterhouse, and Chuck E. Cheese, a popular destination for kids’ birthday parties and everyday fun, recently partnered to build a colorful, long-lasting new playground for the more than 500 children who attend Hamilton Elementary School in Pasadena.
The new playground was unveiled at a ribbon-cutting ceremony last Thursday.
Carter’s Kids builds and develops community and school playgrounds and parks in underserved areas to encourage physical fitness and ensure that every child has access to a fun, safe place to play.
Hamilton Elementary School is the first recipient of Chuck E. Cheese’s Playground Project initiative, bringing fun and safe playgrounds to deserving communities across the country with Carter’s Kids.
