Triggered by a donation from Liam Schwanz, a 4-year-old in the OnTRAC Learning Center, Two Rivers Activity Center is partnering with Dacotah Bank, First Community Credit Union, Gate City Bank and Unison Bank to host a challenge through “piggy bank” donations. Anyone can be involved in supporting the construction of the Meidinger Splash Park by making a donation at the financial institutions listed above. The financial institution will match donations. The challenge will run through Jan. 31, 2021. Each donor will become part of the Splash Makers Club and receive VIP benefits at Meidinger Splash Park.

Any youth who donate will become a Splash Maker and will receive a T-shirt showing their support and a small surprise when they make their donation. They will also be invited to an exclusive celebration at the Meidinger Splash Park on the day of the grand opening and ribbon cutting.

“We thought it was so sweet when Liam said he wanted to donate his money to help build the splash park," said Beth Schwanz, Liam Schwanz's mother. "He knows how much fun it will be and it was exciting for him to contribute to it!”

“We were blown away by the generosity of Liam," said Amy Walters, TRAC facility manager. "He is a very thoughtful young man and we are excited to launch this challenge that his donation sparked. The Meidinger Splash Park will be a space for all ages to enjoy. We are excited to start splashing in the summer of 2021.”
