WBIR takes part in Make a Difference Day

WBIR joined millions of volunteers across the country on Saturday in taking part in USA WEEKEND Make a Difference Day.

USA WEEKEND magazine started Make a Difference Day more than 20 years ago to encourage people to help improve their communities.

WBIR chose to help with plans to build an ADA-certified universal playground at Lakeshore Park in west Knoxville. The project is part of bigger picture plans to expand the park in different phases over the next few years. When it's finished, the playground will be accessible for children of all physical and mental capabilities.

WBIR employees spent the morning clearing out brush, shrubs and small trees around the playground to help prepare the area for construction.
