Children removed from their homes as a result of abuse or neglect often have nothing but the clothes on their back, but Washington-based SimplyFun LLC is working to change that through an ongoing partnership with the My Stuff Bags Foundation.
The educational board game developer has announced a $100,000 product donation to the My Stuff Bags program. The games will help to fill duffel bags of new belongings for children entering crisis shelters and foster care. Each year, nearly 300,000 children arrive at shelters with nothing to call their own.
“Many of our SimplyFun moms have been active in foster care programs and understand the great need that an organization like My Stuff Bags fulfills,” CEO Patty Pearcy said in the company’s release. “If a SimplyFun game can brighten a dark time in a child’s life by adding just one smile, then we all have a reason to smile.”
My Stuff Bags has delivered hundreds of thousands of bags filled with necessities and toys, seeking to address the immediate needs of rescued children. The donation marks SimplyFun’s latest effort in an eight-year partnership with the foundation.
