Play It Forward!


Being a mom to two Seedlings at the Sunflower Creative Arts program, I am a HUGE advocate for P L A Y. Naturally, when I heard the Palm Beach County Boys & Girls Club had a "Play It Forward'"campaign I was interested in helping out.


May 4th the Boys & Girls Club launched the “Play it Forward” program, which encourages donations of gently used or new sporting and gaming goods for use at the 13 Palm Beach County-area Boys &Girls Clubs this summer. This exciting drive will serve over 6,000 boys and girls between the ages of six and 18 by providing them with gently used sports equipment and game consoles. 

Summers days in South Florida are long and hot, so there is plenty of need for indoor and outdoor game equipment. Children outgrow equipment so quickly it's easy to dig up something that no longer suits their age range.
I've already started rummaging through the boys Play Room to find equipment to donate. This is also a great opportunity to lead by example and show your kids the importance of "Playing It Forward." The Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County are committed to keeping children happy, active and safe during the long summer months. For drop off locations and more info you can visit Play It Forward online.


Essentially yours,
