We successfully completed our pre-construction meeting with the City of Savannah, Team Pain Skateparks, and Thomas and Hutton. We’re moving forward with scheduling and still seeking out monetary donations as well as materials and equipment. If you’d like to help then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ve received some monetary donations over the last couple of weeks
$100 – Bull Street Taco
$500 – Mitchell and Rebecca Jones
$5000 – Stephen and Jennifer Standing
Stephen and Jennifer Standing have also generously offered up a house for the Team Pain Crew to reside during construction! We’re still on the lookout for another place for the rest of the crew. So contact us if you you would like to help!
Flint Equipment has donated a skid steer for us to use for a couple of weeks too! And Atlantic Waste Services has donated a dumpster for the duration of the job!!
We’re doing our best to make this happen, but we can’t do it without you! Contact us if you’d like to help!!
Our good friend Tittybats has made a batch of “Skate Cat” pins and is donating 100% of the proceeds toward the skatepark!!! Go to http://tittybats.storenvy.com to grab yours while they last!!!
From March 31 to April 2, Juliana Peloso and Peter Roberts will be showcasing their artwork at Location Gallery (417 Whitaker Street, Savannah, GA 31401) and donating proceeds toward the park! So mark your calendars and come out to see some great art!!
In other news, we have received our updated permits from the city of Savannah and are now scheduling with Team Pain to begin construction. We’ve got a lot of work to do and more money to raise before their arrival, so stay tuned on how you can help!!!
As we finalize our permits with the city of Savannah, we’ll be keeping the fundraising in full swing! The Brodhead family has been supporting this effort since day one, and now they’re continuing to support us with this awesome fundraiser! So come out to Brighter Day on Saturday March 11th and support the skatepark!

Happy New Year everyone!!
We’re gearing up to get Team Pain Skateparks here ASAP and will be posting material/equipment needs in the next couple of weeks so that you can get involved! We are still actively raising money and will be doing so during the park’s construction. If you would like to donate we have a paypal account as well as a gofundme page.
Our next Fundraiser is at Green Truck Pub located at 2430 Habersham Street! We’ll be selling t-shirts and raffling off skateboards!
See you there!!
We may get knocked back, but you can’t keep us down for long! We hope everyone fared ok during the hurricane, and minimal damage occurred if any. A big thanks goes out to the service providers from all over the state and beyond! We are very grateful for your hard work! We’ve got some grant applications out and some fundraisers in the works for the next few months in anticipation of Team Pain Skateparks arrival! Stay tuned everyone!
