A total of $15,000 is still needed before the playground can be installed. The playground is special because it will be accessible to all students, even those in wheel chairs or with disabilities.

Thursday’s fundraiser will be at the Bridge Avenue McDonald’s from 5 to 7 p.m. Volunteers will be there to give out vouchers, and 10 percent of voucher sales will go to the playground fund.

Donations can also be sent to the Chamber Foundation at 2580 Bridge Ave., Albert Lea.
