Molly's Games for Kids Project

Other Community-Led Initiatives for Horizons
RFH Junior Molly Coughlin is committed to keeping our kids engaged and entertained while staying safe at home. After brainstorming ideas, Molly is organizing a game and puzzle drive for our kids. She put a lot of thought and research and has created a list by grade and development. We will be distributing the games along with other surprises for our kids throughout the summer.  Games can be purchased and dropped off at our food pantry drop off locations on Tuesdays and Wednesdays 9:30am-noon or we can arrange pickup. Alternatively, items can be shipped directly to Jersey Shore Coffee Roasters, Attn: Lori/Horizons, 64 Thompson Avenue, Leonardo, NJ 07737
