Play matters. It allows children to create, explore, solve and imagine — which promotes brain development, creative thinking and problem solving. Unfortunately, many kids don’t have the benefit of safe, open spaces.
Enter KaBOOM!, an organization that builds playgrounds in underserved areas. In much the same way that Habitat for Humanity® builds homes, KaBOOM! builds playgrounds. We began partnering with them because at Travelers, we believe every child deserves a safe place to play and learn. Our partnership highlights how we help build thriving neighborhoods where families can live and play safely. We’re proud to help make a difference by offering more children that opportunity.
Travelers began working with KaBOOM! in 2017, bringing together employees, independent agents and other community members to build six great playgrounds.
