THE STORY:

Playworks is a national nonprofit organization that improves school climate, reduces bullying and increases student engagement.

They are the only organization in the country to send enthusiastic, trained adult program coordinators into low-income schools to focus on play as a learning opportunity. Playworks creates energetic, fun environments at recess and throughout the school day that encourage students to engage with their peers and teach them essential life skills such as teamwork, conflict resolution, empathy and fair play.

During this 2016-17 school year, Playworks is currently serving over 35,000 students across Boston, Brockton, Lawrence, New Bedford, & Somerville. Playworks ensures students are safe and included in areas of Massachusetts that are generally considered dangerous and high-risk.

Please consider giving a gift to my fundraising efforts:

$40 - Balls and cones for one school
$100 - Gives 4 children the chance to play in a sports league for the first time
$182 - Enables 1 child to be a part of Playworks for a whole year
$250 - Sponsors 12 Junior Coaches to attend a leadership conference
$500 - Provides year-round training for 1 Playworks Coach

Thank you for believing in the power of play to bring out the best in every kid!
