Let’s Play is an initiative by Dr Pepper Snapple Group to provide kids and families with the tools, places and inspiration to make active play a daily priority.
Dr Pepper Snapple has committed more than $28 million through Let’s Play since the program launched in 2011, impacting millions of youth serving organizations across the U.S., as well as Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.
Through Let’s Play, Dr Pepper Snapple partners with two non-profit organizations KaBOOM! and Good Sports to build and improve playgrounds and provide grants for sports equipment to help make active play possible:
- In 2011, Dr Pepper Snapple launched Let’s Play with a $15 million commitment to KaBOOM! to build or improve 2,000 playgrounds. In 2014, Dr Pepper Snapple and KaBOOM! extended their partnership through 2016 with an additional $10 million commitment from DPS to continue providing kids with the active play they need.
- Since 2014, Dr Pepper Snapple has committed $3 million to Good Sports to provide athletic gear, footwear and sports equipment to child-serving community organizations, extending the benefits of Let’s Play to older kids who participate in organized sports.
By providing underserved communities with safe, accessible playgrounds and sports equipment through Let’s Play, Dr Pepper Snapple is making play possible for more kids and doing its part to help eliminate the play deficit.
