Volunteers from the Colts and several other companies joined together Tuesday to build a playground in a near east side community.

Two-hundred volunteers pitched in on the playground for students at the Paramount School of Excellence. The new playground’s design is based on drawings created by children who participated in a Design Day event back in July.

The Paramount school, the state’s first “green school,” did not have a playground until now.

“Helping out the community is one of my things that I enjoy doing,” wide receiver Pierre Garcon said. “Helping the little kids out, the youth of our future, helping them, getting them involved in the community, trying to set a good example by helping out, giving back to where you’re from and what helps you and supports you.

Tuesday’s project is a part of the Colts ongoing efforts to encourage young people to be active at least 60 minutes each day through the NFL’s PLAY 60 Campaign.
