Help your local school win a mud kitchen

The United Brotherhood of Carpenters local 2222 asking the people to choose which schools in Grey, Bruce, Huron or Perth they would like to win a new mud kitchen.

Recently members handcrafted and donated “Mud Kitchen” outdoor play areas at two schools in the Bluewater District School Board.

After an overwhelming response, members have now decided to construct 10 additional hand-crafted, custom-built “Mud Kitchens” to donate to schools in the counties of Bruce, Grey, Huron and Perth.

People can vote until November 15th at the UBC Facebook page.

While they may be messy, the union says they’re one of the most exciting things that kids look forward to when they go outside for recess.

Mud Kitchens are handcrafted by members at UBC Local 2222 and are designed for hours of endless entertainment on the playground. Mud kitchens can provide great learning opportunities for younger children by helping them to enhance their creative, imaginative and sensitive faculties.

“We recently received a request to donate some scrap material for the future construction of mud kitchens,” says Ryan Plante, Local Union Coordinator. “It’s important for UBC Local 2222 to give back to the communities that we live and work in. We believe in using our skills to help these communities grow.”

On November 15th, we will tally up how many votes each school receives and the top 10 schools will receive their very own “Mud Kitchen.”
