Playset Builds:
Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need construction experience to participate in a playset build?

No special skills are required. At each project, Roc Solid build leaders assist our volunteers every step of the way, making it easy for anyone to build hope! In fact, we are very family friendly; kids of all ages are welcome too!

What should I bring/wear?

Roc Solid provides everything you need, so leave your tool box at home! Please wear closed-toed shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. Keep in mind that you may get your clothes dirty. We will provide all volunteers with Roc Solid t-shirts, snacks and drinks during the build, and lunch after the reveal (*please let us know about any special dietary needs/preferences)

What’s the timeline for the day, and what will I be expected to do?

Roc Solid volunteers arrive at 8am, and sponsor volunteers arrive at 9am. Volunteers are then split into groups to work on the different playset sections. Each section is organized with the right hardware and a detailed instruction manual. We’ll also have Build Leaders nearby to answer questions. If possible, the playset will be “revealed” to the family and kiddo when it’s complete. Projects are typically wrapped up before 1pm.

What is the waiver of liability and why do I have to sign it?

Our waiver releases Roc Solid Foundation from any legal liability in the event that injury or personal property damage occurs during a project or event. We ask that waivers be completed before any volunteers begin work on a project site. They may be completed during online registration, but we will also have hard copies available the day of the project. If a volunteer is under the age of 18, his/her name should be listed on the parent/guardian’s waiver.

What if rain is forecasted on my build date?

Play It Forward builds are typically rain or shine, and we provide ponchos to volunteers in the event of rain. If we feel your safety may be at risk, the decision to move forward or postpone the project will be made the day prior by noon. If unforeseen inclement weather arises overnight, your organization’s main point of contact(s) will receive a text or call by 7:00am the day of the project.
