One Call Services repairs playground at Shields Elementary School



The playground at Shields Elementary School in Lewes was built in 1995 by about 500 volunteers. The project took thousands of worker hours over a six-day period at a cost of $40,000, which was raised by donations.

In August 2011, 40 Schell Brothers employees provided needed repairs, sanding and covering the wooden playground with 40 gallons of solid stain wood covering.

During the current school year, the playground was once again found in need of some repairs. This time the need was replacing rotting posts, securing sliding boards, replacing boards and railings, and doing many other safety repairs. One Call Services stepped up to the challenge and donated its time to do all the needed upgrades, in hopes that the playground will withstand the test of time until Shields moves into its new location at the Lewes School in four or five years.

On the Only In Your State website, the Shields playground is listed as one of the 11 amazing playgrounds to visit in Delaware. To see the full list, go to
