This board game drive will allow students to play games and enjoy being a young person. It will aid our team in delivering our unique mental health services, and provide an outlet for students that is fun and engaging.

1. Computer, printer and paper to make flyers/signs

2. Large cardboard boxes or storage bins to collect donations

3. Bags or boxes for transporting (or mailing) donated items
