LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - An area church did a little spring cleaning this week at a Lafayette playground.
The Salvation Army playground on the corner of 11th and Salem streets in Lafayette has been in need of a renovation for the last couple of years.
Tuesday, members of Riverside Covenant Church in West Lafayette helped spruce up the park.
Major Jim Irvine says renovations include a new fence, new mulch and new picnic tables.
Irvine says church members wanted to know how they could pitch in.
"Our friends over at Riverside Covenant Church asked how they can help in this community," Irvine said. "They asked how they can help families in need. They've taken on the ownership of rebuilding and revitalizing this playground."
Irvine says they are thankful for the more than $3,000 in renovations.
