One family's loss leads to an outpouring of love from the community.

More than 1,500 volunteers have been working on Angel Park Playground in Perry Hall. The playground is all-inclusive, providing a safe place to play for children with special needs. 

Kelly Szczybor started the project in honor of her son Ryan whom she lost to leukemia back in 1998.

The community phase of the project wraps-up Sunday, but organizers still looking for volunteers to help build.

Anyone interested in lending a hand can contact organizers HERE.
