Board Games Creating Happy Memories

Thanks!
Thanks!

Board games help children do more than just learn how to work in groups and develop educational skills; they help create a sense of community for families! You gave a child in need more than just a simple board game. You gave a toy the entire family can use together to bond and create happy memories that will be cherished by both children and parents for years to come.

Your generosity helped deliver board games to 21 children who will play, learn, and grow. As a part of our ongoing project, “Fulfill Holiday Wishes for 662 Bay Area Children”, these gifts were distributed in the two weeks leading up to the holidays via our Holiday Wish Drive Warehouse. With your help we were able to fulfill 68,400 wishes for children in need.

On behalf of the children we help, thank you for delivering joy and a lifetime of happy memories! Even though this project is retired, if you would still like to donate, please contribute to “Fulfill 662 Wishes for Bay Area Children”. 

Happy memories all around

The Gift of Board Games

It has been proven time and again that board games help children do more than just learn how to work in groups. They help children develop critical reasoning skills,  develop basic mathematical skills, increase attention span and focus, understand how to “play fair”, help create a sense of community for families, and so much more! You gave a child in need more than just a simple board game. For children like Cain from Canal Family Support Program, you gave a board game that the entire family can use together to bond.

Your donations have helped deliver board games to 21 children who will play, learn, and grow. As a part of our project, Fulfill Holiday Wishes for 662 Bay Area Children, these gifts were distributed in the two weeks leading up to the holidays via our Holiday Wish Drive Warehouse. With your help, we were able to fulfill 68,400 wishes for children in need.

On behalf of the children we help, thank you!
