RASI three

RASI board members presented a $2,200 check to the Jackie Joyner Kersee Foundation to help build a playground.

The REALTOR® Association of Southwestern Illinois (RASI) was recently awarded a My REALTOR® Party Placemaking grant from the National Association of REALTORS® to assist in the development of a playground for the Jackie Joyner Kersee Center in East St. Louis, IL.

The playground is part of a center expansion that includes the construction of eight classrooms and a playground that is open to all children and families.  RASI was the first association to make a donation to the park that the JJK Center board hopes to have installed by the beginning of next school year.

My REALTOR® Party Grant Coordinator Jim Clayton assisted in the grant development along with Local GAD Kyle Anderson.

The check was presented to the JJK Center by RASI President Doug Payne along with Account Executive Deb Frazier and RASI Board members.
