We rise up by lifting others

Celebrating our mission through positive change

In support of our mission and values, PlayCore is committed to actively supporting the communities in which we live, work, and play through strategic investment of our time, talent, and resources. We network in a variety of meaningful ways that align with our charitable giving guidelines. Hundreds of PlayCore volunteers donate countless hours of their time and skills to help complete projects across a broad spectrum of needs. Many embrace our industry and support our community by serving on boards in local and national roles. We also support our corporate charities, United Way, the Chambliss Center for Children, and Ronald Mc Donald House of Chattanooga in a variety of ways, as individuals and as a corporation. Our annual Days of Caring bring together our dedicated and enthusiastic employees and local organizations for a fun day of volunteering to benefit our communities.
