Bless Field at New Columbia
In May 2014, OPI completed its biggest project to date: Bless Field - a 9,000 square foot artificial turf soccer field. Bless Field is in the heart of New Columbia, a neighborhood of nearly 1,200 kids from 22 countries speaking more than 11 different languages, and has become a place where all of these kids can share the common language that is the beautiful game. Bless Field supports after-school programming at the Rosa Parks Elementary School and the Regence Boys & Girls Club, both nearby.
The $200,000 project was financed by a coalition of grants, corporate sponsors and individual donations.
Bless Field was made possible by hundreds of supporters - each and every one vital to project completion. Key supporters included.
