WAVELAND, MS (WLOX) -

The Where Angels Play Foundation is one step closer to reaching its fundraising goal to build a new playground in Waveland.

ABC's Robin Roberts donated $25,000 to the Playground project through her Production Company Rockin Robert's Productions.

The Where Angels Play foundation was started by a retired New Jersey Firefighter who developed ties with a local elementary school after the students wrote letters of condolences to him after 9-11.

The new Waveland playground will replace the equipment in Elmwood Bourgeois Park on Central Avenue.

The Where Angels Play Foundation will build the playground a couple of weeks before the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. 

The group is accepting donations to help build the playground on their GoFundMe page.
