NFL stars help Berks playground

READING, Pa. - Two NFL stars with roots in Berks County were helping revitalize Reading's West Lawn Playground.

Chad Henne and John Gilmore were in town once again doing some work to the playground.

Volunteers helped out with landscaping and planted some trees and flowers.

They also spruced up fencing around the playground, and did roof work.

And, there's a newly asphalted track for kids to run and ride their bikes on.

"It's important because it brings everyone together. That's what the Gilmore-Henne community fund is all about, it's not just a playground, it's about revitalizing neighborhoods through playgrounds and providing kids safe, clean places to play," said Christine Anderton, Executive Director of the Gilmore-Henne Community Foundation.

There's also a new mural at the playground that the kids painted themselves.
