4. Win Big on Super Bowl Squares

We know you’ll all be watching the Patriots this weekend, so why not add a little friendly competition towards a good cause? Challenge your friends to play Super Bowl Squares! Charge for entry per square, save a percentage of the money for the winner, and donate the rest to support safe and healthy play in low-income elementary schools throughout New England.


 

5. Come to Recess!

Ever wish you could re-live your glory days on the foursquare court? You can! Volunteer at one of our 37 partner schools across greater Boston. Enjoy a few hours of service spent playing your favorite recess games, giving out high-fives, and acting as a positive adult role model for our students. You can volunteer individually or with your company.
