Leadership South County chooses to Build Joy for Legacy Project

An out-of-this world playhouse was designed and built by the Leadership South County Class 4.A collaboration with Habitat SLO County, the space-themed playhouse was donated to Exploration Discovery Center in Grover Beach.

According to Kathy McCorry, South County Chambers CEO, “The South County Chambers Leadership program is a once in a lifetime opportunity to fully immerse yourself in both Leadership and Community. The 10-month program teaches a person how to become a better leader. The legacy projects teach the importance of community and that to be a leader is to give back to help others in community. It is the giving aspect of the program that teaches us by example that a rising tide, floats ALL boats.”

Leadership South County participant Todd Huebler was inspired by the project. “It was a lot of fun to be with this great group of people doing something for others. It is cool to see how Habitat SLO makes it so easy for us to come in and build these play structures in such an efficient manner. I really appreciated the preparedness, the snacks, and the lunch! It was also rewarding to see everyone step into their skills and do the work that they enjoy while giving something back to the community.”

Women Build in SLO County

Eleven women chose to spend a Saturday making a significant difference in the lives of two local families in SLO County. These compassionate volunteers built two playhouses, providing creative and fun spaces for children to call their own. This project marked the revival of the Women Build initiative in the area, showcasing the power of women joining together to enact positive change.


Michelle McCovey-Good, T & S Structural President, said, “It was super inspiring to see women of all backgrounds and generations come together with their skills and creativity to put together the playhouses. I would definitely encourage other businesses to sponsor a playhouse build. The theme of “everyone deserves to play” is a unique concept that we frequently overlook. It was great to celebrate the joy that the playhouse will bring to a local child.”


If you're inspired by this project and want to get involved in future Women Build initiatives, learn more by visiting our website or contact Dawn Smith at (805) 316-1192.

Your support will make a meaningful difference in SLO County while you develop skills and meet new friends.
