KaBOOM! is a national nonprofit dedicated to giving all kids the childhood they deserve. KaBOOM! works to bring balanced and active play into the daily lives of all children, particularly those growing up in poverty in America.
CarMax and KaBOOM! are providing grants to build or improve 79 play spaces by the end of 2018, bringing play to those most in need.
Together with KaBOOM!, The CarMax Foundation celebrated the building of our 50th playground together in Baltimore, Maryland in June 2016. Over the course of our partnership with KaBOOM!, we have brought play to communities all across the country.
Jim Williams, Inventory Associate at our Fort Worth/Arlington store, struck up a conversation with a stranger that turned into a new playground for a local school.
We celebrated building our 50th playground with KaBOOM! and asked our associates to share some of their favorite memories.
The CarMax Foundation and KaBOOM! celebrated the building of our 33rd playground together in Miami, Florida in November 2015. Over the course of three years, we exceeded our goal of creating opportunities for 100,000 children to get the active play they need to thrive.
