Humble Hustle Company renovating northwest Roanoke park

Roanoke Valley News

ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — The Humble Hustle Company hosted a socially distant drive-thru fundraiser for their newest initiative Project P.A.R.K., which stands for Peaceful Areas of Recreation for Kids.

This project is raising money to renovate Villa Heights park.

Humble Hustle says at least 30 to 50 kids play in the park daily.

“Overall, this is a pretty good playground, but it does need some improvements,” said Bryson Mackey.

The organization says they want to make the park safe. As people drive through the park, the organization hopes donors will see the much-needed improvements.

The renovations will happen in phases. The first goal is to fix the basketball court — where broken glass can be found — and fix the gate along the park.

“There are just so many kids that come from this area, and they don’t have the equitable resources as you can find in other areas in the community. We want them to have the same benefits here as they could have if they were able to go to other areas,” said Douglas Pitzer, Humble Heights Program co-chair.

If you missed this event, there’s another opportunity to give on Wednesday, March 10.
