Hillsides Launches Crowdfunding Campaign for Recreation Equipment

Press release from: Hillsides

Hillsides has launched a campaign through the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to raise $5,000 to furnish the charity’s recreation center with sports and entertainment equipment. The campaign, “Recovery through Recreation,” aims to provide a fun, engaging, and safe environment for the children and youth of Hillsides in the Residential Treatment Services program.
Currently, the recreation center is bare bones, containing only the most basic equipment. The campaign is asking for donations toward a ping pong table, air hockey table, weights, and assorted games, among other items.
“The children living at Hillsides come from backgrounds of extreme poverty, neglect, and trauma. Participating in recreational activities helps children cope with stress, learn about structure and limits, gain a sense of achievement, and lead healthier lifestyles,” said Hillsides chief executive officer, Joseph M. Costa. “We are excited to tap into a new source of innovative fundraising led by staff members that will improve the lives of the children under our care.”
To contribute, please visit: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/recovery-through-recreation. The campaign will last until June 8.
