December 14, 2018 (El Cajon) -- Fourth grade students in Mrs. Lee’s class at Meridian Elementary were asked how they would like to improve their community. The children dreamed up the idea of a playground for families at the East County Transitional Living Center in El Cajon, which helps homeless people transition off the streets, then created the design. But they had no idea that Allstate Insurance had provided funding through its Good Starts Young program to make the playground become a reality.
