BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) -- Children attending Whitesville Elementary School have a new playground to enjoy thanks to efforts by the Parent-Teacher Organization.

A portion of the money raised came from fundraising events hosted by the organization. The rest of the funds came from parents and staff members.

According to a release, the playground equipment was purchased during a 50% off sale. The remaining money was used to purchase kick balls, basketballs and other sporting equipment for each classroom.
