board gamesCold, wet weather means indoor recess. Clean your closets of Connect 4 and send your Uno cards to HES! With distractions and technology at home kids might not get full use of their board games. But there’s hope for these toys – send them to your local elementary school and give them an extended life. Teachers have made requests (below), but are open to any donations.

DROP DONATIONS in the main office, or send them into class with your child. Buy games new from Amazon using our AmazonSmile link (and support HES twice!) or pass on your gently used games.
