Thanks to a generous donation from iOffice, a Houston-based facility management software provider, and U.S. Alliance, a local spaceflight operations company, Bailey Elementary students got their hands on a brand-new playground they can proudly call their own.

Recognizing the need for a new place for students to enjoy their recess, Bailey teachers started a letter writing campaign asking for donations to build a playground. What the school received was better than they had imagined.

“I was ecstatic when I first saw the playground,” Eugenia Morefield, school counselor said. “This playground has put a smile on so many little children. We needed a safe place where students could take a break from academics and have fun. Thanks to iOffice and US Alliance, our wish came true.”

Students, staff and representatives from both organizations celebrated the new addition with a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the new installation and the blossoming partnership with Pasadena ISD.

“We understand the importance of having a playground,” Elizabeth Dukes, chief marketing manager of iOffice Corp. “When the school asked us for a donation, we said, ‘let’s make it happen.’”

“I have been volunteering at Bailey for about 15 years,” Lori Castro, a United Space Alliance representative and Bailey mother said. “When I asked our organization to make a donation, they jumped at the opportunity.”
