Waterloo Elementary in Monroe, MI

At Bridgestone, we are constantly looking for new ways to Rethink Green. With your help on the Fuel the Cause transformation project, we’ve made a difference at Waterloo Elementary!

Monroe, MI

In a district comprised of five elementary schools, Waterloo Elementary is both the smallest and has the highest poverty rate at 80%. Because of deterioration and the resulting lack of safety, the playground equipment had to be removed, leaving behind empty green space and an uneven, cracked blacktop.

We’re excited to present Waterloo with the $25,000 award, which will help transform this underutilized space into a revamped playground for not only the students during school, but also for the neighborhood children after hours, encouraging active play and neighborhood togetherness.
