FULTON, Miss. (WTVA) -- Nash Bennett was born without the full use of his legs.
He gets around in a wheelchair which is fine most of the time.
Play time is another story.
The Itawamba Attendance Center playground is not accessible for children with disabilities.
Nash says it's frustrating.
"It's real frustrating. I don't get to play and it looks fun," Bennett said.
That heartbreaking reality is a tough one for anyone to watch.
"They sit on the concrete and watch the other kids as they plan and they just can't interact with the others," Counselor Staci Kline said.
With that in mind, plans are in the works to build a new playground to cater to children with special needs.
"This playground is unique in that it caters to the needs of all special needs children. It's focuses on the social needs. It focuses on cognitive needs and development needs. There are sensory panels," Teacher Emily Mabus said.
They plan to raise the money through an organization teachers formed called April's Angels.
It was formed in memory of April South, a teacher who expressed a need for such a playground prior to her death.
Previous fundraising efforts have already proved successful for other projects.
"When we raised money for our smart table this time last year $10,000 was a big number. Now, we're looking at $100,000. We have no doubt that we're gonna raise it and the people of Itawamba County are outstanding. When there's a need, you can guarantee it will be taken care of," Mabus added.
That day couldn't come soon enough for Nash. He's ready for a better view.
Organizers encourage individuals and businesses to donate any amount or sponsor a specific piece of equipment for the playground.
Donations are tax-deductable and can be made online through www.createfoundation.com
while noting this is for April's Angels-Special Project.
Checks can also be made out to CREATE with April's Angels in the memo and mailed to April's Angels 488 Little Indian Drive, Fulton, MS, 38843.
