Charity of the Week: Playworks

In recognition of our speakers, ELGL makes a donation to a charity of their choice. You can donate by including a couple of extra dollars in your PayPal payment or write a check directly to the charity. This is optional.

Our next speaker, Mike Golub (Portland Timbers) has chosen “Playworks” as his charity of choice.

About Playworks

The Playworks Mission: To improve the health and well-being of children by increasing opportunities for physical activity and safe, meaningful play. 

Playworks is a national nonprofit organization that supports learning by providing safe, healthy and inclusive play and physical activity to low-income schools at recess and throughout the entire school day. We currently operate our direct service program in more than 300 schools in 23 US cities, and serve more than 130,000 elementary school students every day.

Playworks Training also provides training and technical support for schools and youth organizations that wish to train their own adults to manage a healthy and inclusive playground.
