Why let your old games gather dust?
Give them to a good cause and help children learn something from the games you grew up with. STAR, Inc.’s GameSchool department which uses preexisting games as a medium to develop academic and social skills in children invites gamers to recycle their old games by donating them to charity. Any donated game, game system or accessory would be used to teach children through fun, interactive and innovative classes in a positive environment. GameSchool currently offers classes teaching elementary school aged children to play games together both competitively and cooperatively, much like a sporting team. In the future and with gamers’ help we would like to be able to not only offer more classes to but to also provide children with a lending library of games. Donations may also be sold with the proceeds being used to help fund our program. STAR, Inc. is a 501(c) (3) non-profit, and donations made to it are tax-deductible.
While we are happy to accept any donation, our wish list of items includes:
- Any E rated video game that allows for 4 players
