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.
