The project was initiated by Oosterhouse's charitable foundation, Carter's Kids, which aims to create and promote awareness of fitness and self-esteem for America's youth, the Michigan Credit Union League said (Michigan Monitor May 29).

U.S. Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-Mich) and Holland Mayor Kurt Dykstra took part in the dedication ceremonies.  

Funded by Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Lake Michigan CU and built by its employees, the new playground serves west Michigan youths as part of Windmill Island in Holland.

Huizenga is a long-time credit union supporter. In 2012, he co-sponsored legislation to raise the cap on credit union member business lending.

Lake Michigan CU recently landed Oosterhouse as its spokesman. Oosterhouse, the host of the new HGTV network show "Million Dollar Rooms," is a native of Traverse City, Mich., and a member of the credit union (News Now March 8).
