Mt. Vernon Day Care Center gets new playground

More than 200 volunteers have been working to build a new playground at the Mount Vernon Day Care Center.

The original playground was donated back in 1972 and was in dire need of an upgrade.

The center's board members say they applied for and received grants from the national not-for-profit organization Kaboom, which helps build playgrounds across the country.

Organizers say the project should be complete by the end of today.
