Since the re-opening of the Friendship House Community Center, CAPK has obtained funding to add a Sports Field and a playground to the Friendship House. One project that still needs to be completed is the Quad. This is currently a large dirt area and our goal is to transform it into a park like setting that the community can safely use for celebrations, cultural events, concerts and movies.
We have received generous donations towards this project but we still need $35,000 to secure all the funding necessary to construct the Quad.
