Arvada teen collects over 100 games for foster families

Posted

Lucy George, a member of North Arvada Middle School’s Family Career, and Community, Leaders of America (FCCLA) organized a board game drive to donate to Foster Source, a nonprofit serving foster children.

The FCCLA mission is to work with families and local communities to make them better places. George chose to work with Foster Source as her family works with foster care. She said she has seen first hand how a simple board games can make families getting to know each other easier.

For the last few weeks she collected games both new and used by reaching out to people at her school, on Nextdoor and Facebook. George then packaged the games in gift bags with music, candy and a card and delivered them to families at Foster Sources free movie night in Lakewood.
