Alexandra’s Playground brings the Gift of Play to underserved communities where the children wouldn’t otherwise have safe and active play opportunities. Established in 2009 to positively impact the world and commemorate the life of Alexandra Vitale, our founders’ young daughter, we have funded and built 21 playgrounds to date. With a concentration in the tri-state NY-NJ-CT area, we have built playgrounds across the US, five in Haiti, and one in Afghanistan. We also provide safe and active play opportunities through programs, recently funding NYC Parks’ Kids in Motion program at two new locations. Alexandra’s Playground, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is committed to creating safe environments for children to strengthen their bodies and minds through imaginative play and interaction with other children. An Alexandra’s Playground typically culminates in a Community Build, bringing families and neighborhoods together.

Since its founding in 1881 by visionary leader Clara Barton, the American Red Cross has been the nation’s premier emergency response organization. As part of a worldwide movement that offers neutral humanitarian care to the victims of war, the American Red Cross distinguishes itself by also aiding victims of devastating natural disasters.

Over the years, the organization has expanded its services, always with the aim of preventing and relieving suffering. Today, in addition to domestic disaster relief, the American Red Cross offers compassionate services in five other areas: community services that help the needy; support and comfort for military members and their families; the collection, processing and distribution of lifesaving blood and blood products; educational programs that promote health and safety; and international relief and development programs.
