Dozens of unexpected volunteers come out to a Mountain Home school to build their first-ever playground

Organizers say they were only expecting about a dozen volunteers to come out, but nearly 100 came out on Saturday morning.

MOUNTAIN HOME, Idaho — More than 90 unexpected volunteers helped build the first-ever playground at a middle school in Mountain Home on Saturday.

Officials say they were only expecting about a dozen people to help build the playground, but once word got out about the projects, nearly 100 people came out to help, including a local football team.

Volunteers built a play-structure, repainted lines on the school basketball courts, created a yoga space and created a new logo for Hacker Middle School.

The playground was paid for by a series of grants.

The grand opening for the newly built playground will be on Tuesday night.
