Vince Gill will help build a new playground in New Orleans on Sept. 25 to provide a safe place for children.

The playground is being built in honor of Vince, who was the recipient of the 2006 Academy of Country Music/The Home Depot Humanitarian Award. Vince will join volunteers from The Home Depot and the surrounding community to construct a new KaBOOM! playground at the relocated campus of the International School of Louisiana in New Orleans. Parts of the former campus were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. The new facility will serve around 400 students currently enrolled in the school. “It is truly an honor to be able to build this playground in New Orleans,” Vince says. “Given the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, it is an obvious need for the community.”
