Photo essay: Building the playground

Editor’s note: When she wasn’t helping to volunteer with KaBOOM!, the Philadelphia Union Foundation, MLS W.O.R.K.S, the Chester Upland School District, and Chester City United on Tuesday at Science and Discovery High School in Chester, PSP photographer Barb Colligon found some time to document her fellow volunteers’ hard work. Here’s a look at what she saw.
