CANONSBURG, PA – With support from Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania, Inc., young children of all abilities will soon be able to enjoy an early learning, accessible playground. Columbia Gas and CARE for Children broke ground on Wednesday, July 9 at the Ashley Booth Griffin CARE for Children Center in Bradford, marking the start of construction for an accessible playground geared toward children aged two to seven.
Digger Dog with CARE Summer Preschool:  Digger Dog, Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania’s new safety mascot, visited with the CARE Summer Preschool Day Camp on Wednesday and talked about safety, reminding children and the community to always call 811 at least three days before digging.
“Columbia Gas will assist us in preparing the land for the future site of playground equipment,” said CARE for Children Executive Director Tina Martin. “We are grateful for the willingness of Columbia Gas employees to volunteer time and machinery for the project.”

Columbia Gas and CARE for Children hope the Company’s $2,500 donation and volunteer efforts encourage other local organizations to donate services and financially support the project. The playground is slated to be completed September 2014.

“It is important to promote community organizations that are encouraging safety and empowering children,” said Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania Vice President and General Manager Mike Davidson.
Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania’s new safety mascot Digger Dog™ attended the ceremony to remind Bradford residents to make the free call to 811 at least three days before digging work begins. For more information about safe digging and natural gas safety visit www.ColumbiaGasPA.com/digger-dog.
