Diman, Warwick, Newport, and Chariho students build dream playhouses for sick children



Fall River MA/Warwick/Newport/Richmond RI – Local high school students are once again making young, sick children’s dreams come true.

Each year, Bryant students come together to manage an on-campus event called Project Playhouse. Project Playhouse is a non-profit organization that runs through Rosemary’s Wish Kids Inc, where local vocational high schools build dream playhouses for children with life-threatening illnesses.

According to Cassandra Hierl, who is a freshman at Bryant University and is involved in the event, the group was very excited to be holding this event in person again this year, in celebration of their 7th annual Project Playhouse Reveal.

The event is made possible by Navigant Credit Union, Target, Bishop Hendricken, and McGraw Hill Education.

Warwick Area Career and Technical Center, Richmond’s Chariho Career and Tech Center, Newport Area Career and Technical Center, and Fall River’s Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School built beautiful and detailed playhouses to brighten the lives of ill children.

Project Playhouse has given away nearly 30 playhouses to deserving families including several more this year.

The schools and students that built the houses, the families receiving the houses, and sponsors, attended an event Wednesday morning to reveal the playhouses and give them to the rightful owners.
