Becker Field and Havens Improvements
Havens’ Becker Field is more than a beloved playground and PE classroom, it is home to Halloween parades, movie nights, soccer practice, and community events. Installed 12 years ago during major renovations at Havens, the current turf consists of artificial grass over coconut husk infilla and a drainage mat. This setup has kept Becker Field easy to maintain, temperate for small feet, and a soft landing for active children. The useful life span of artificial turf, like was used in the 2010 renovation, is six to eight years. We’re four years past that, and it’s time to replace the Becker Field turf.
Please join us in contributing to the turf replacement at Becker Field. Funds raised through the Parents Club will join other funding sources to make the field placement a reality by next school year. We’d like to raise at least $40,000. Once Becker Field is paid for, any remaining funds will be used toward other capital improvement projects at Havens, like play surface and asphalt replacement.
We will recognize donations of $1,000 or more with a naming opportunity that will be creatively displayed around the field. Please select your donation level below to contribute by credit card. If you prefer to send a check, please make it payable to Piedmont Education Foundation at 401 Highland Ave, 94611 and put “Havens Capital Fund” in the memo.
