The Domestic Violence Shelter in Mansfield has a new playground, with the help of a grant. Mayor Tim Theaker, local McDonald's franchise owners Shirley and Larry Monica, and Ann Newman of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northeast Ohio joined Shelter Director Kathy Ezawa for a ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday. Ezawa says the previous playset was old and unsafe, so it was time for a new one for the 60 to 70 children who spend time at the shelter each year to enjoy. Newman says the decision to donate $12,533 was an easy one because Ronald McDonald House Charities was created to help children and families, and the Domestic Violence Shelter does great work. Ronald McDonald House Charities funds projects such as this with the change you drop into the container at the drive-thru window. The address of the Domestic Violence Shelter is kept secret for security purposes.
