A donation of playground equipment was a “true blessing,” said Janet Baldwin, director of the Oseola McCarty Youth Development Center. William Carey University donated the swing set and see-saw that were used during the recent production of “How to Eat Like a Child.” Music professor Connie Roberts said rather than take the set apart at the end of the show, she contacted Baldwin to see if the center could use it for its playground. “We have been trying to get the playground into shape,” said Baldwin. “It was right on time and what we needed.” The center, located on McSwain Street, serves 30-50 children in its after-school program and up to 90 children during the summer. Volunteers provide tutoring and the children receive a warm meal before going home in the evenings.
