Pinball Bringing Joy to the Children of the Northeast United States During the Holiday Season
Project Pinball Charity Group teams up with local communities across the Northeast U.S.A to gift pinball machines to the children and their families of 8 different children’s hospitals and Ronald McDonald Houses.
December 1st, 2020
Just in time for the holiday season, the Project Pinball Charity will be dedicating 8 pinball machines that were both donated to the charity from long-time supporters and purchased through months of fundraising in each of these communities. The Project Pinball Charity will provide these pinball machines as free therapeutic devices that will benefit children, families, caregivers, and hospital staff alike.
Stern Pinball, American Pinball, and Data East have designed these 8 incredibly fun pinball machines that will be given to the children of these children’s hospitals and Ronald McDonald House Charities. Project Pinball was invited to oversee and set-up each of these machines and to implement their pinball placement program for the benefit of each location.
Patients at each facility will experience the therapeutic benefits of their gift. This provides them a unique tool to utilize to get their minds off the tough circumstances they may be going through. It has been a huge team effort with everyone involved in these communities across the nation to make these opportunities happen for each and every location at the most perfect time to close out 2020.
As of 2020, Project Pinball will have placed 54 pinball machines throughout the United States in children’s hospitals and Ronald McDonald Houses. The entire Project Pinball Team are beyond excited to see this happen after all the hard work both teams have put into making these the safest and best pinball machine dedications possible. After spending much of quarantine planning this December Tour, we are extremely thankful for this opportunity to do such impactful things with pinball at such a time like this.
