Summer fun packs handed out in Eau Claire
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - With kids trying to find ways to stay active this summer, Eau Claire Parks, Recreation, and Forestry came up with a way to have fun while staying safe.
Staff members were out Wednesday at the shelter in Boyd Park handing out summer fun packs.
They invited families to come down and pick up a craft kit, which includes things like a frisbee and sidewalk chalk.
"We're going to have a few different pop-up little programs throughout the summer, simply because we weren't able to have our playground program - our River City Adventure Program. So, we wanted to spread the joy and really encourage some Leisure and Recreation families in their own homes or their parks," said Julie Booth with Eau Claire Parks, Rec, & Forestry.
Last week, Eau Claire Parks, Recreation, and Forestry handed out 50 packs to families.
The hope was to hand out 150 more packs this week.
