Greentree School and the parent council have been hard at work raising funds for the accessible addition to the existing playground and a local business is wanting to help out. 
 
"We are doing a fundraiser here at H&R Block. We are accepting donations for the Greentree School Accessible Playground and we are matching donations here at the office," stated Lydia Nastiuk, owner of Drumheller's H&R Block. 
 
Nastiuk and her employees are hoping to raise a lot of money for the playground. 
 
"Kids are the future and if they don't have a place to be or a safe place to play and interact with kids, I mean that's the most important thing that kids need I think," she noted. 
 
There's two different ways residents can donate money with H&R Block.
 
"People can either top up their tax returns or they don't even have to do their tax returns here. If they want to come in and leave a monetary donation, we take those as well," outlined Nastiuk. 
 
"We've had a great response from people. People are really excited about it (because) they know that the kids are really important within our community and a lot of people are happy to donate," she added. 
 
H&R Block will be accepting donations until the end of March, which leaves a couple more weeks to get donations in.
