For homeless children, many of the simple joys of childhood can be harder to come by. One non-profit organization in Pueblo seeks to provide these kids an outlet to simply be a kid.

For children living in the Elko Avenue Apartments, an emergency family shelter run by non-profit organization Posada, there is no place to play. Posada says that a wooden play-center has been donated, with volunteers ready to help, but funds are still needed to create the playground landscape. The remaining funds needed are $472.

Posada is seeking people willing to make a donation to support the playground project. Along with the playground, Posada is also looking to add a community garden, sidewalks, new gates and cement for a basketball court on the family shelter grounds. Anyone interested in making a donation is asked to contact Diana Hall, the Posada Business Development Director, at 821-0889, or visit their Web site
