WARWICK, RHODE ISLAND…
For a generation reared on video games, iPods and computers, you wouldn’t think an old school game like foosball would have an appeal with children between the ages of six and 18. Based on the reaction to DirectBuy of Providence’s donation of a brand new foosball table to the Boys & Girls Club of Warwick, the game is still a hit with today’s youth—and their parents.
Made by one of the finest foosball manufacturers, the regulation-size foosball table retails for around $600. DirectBuy of Providence Owner Heng Meas delivered the table to the Boys & Girls Club of Warwick’s Norwood branch, located at 42 Frederick Street in Warwick.
“To us, being a member of the Warwick and greater Providence business community also means being a part of the community in general, just like our members,” said Meas. “So when we make a donation to a place like the Boys & Girls Club, we’re not only helping out a great cause, but one that probably benefits our members, their families and their friends and neighbors, and that’s always worthwhile.”
The Boys & Girls Club of Warwick is a non-profit organization that depends on the generosity and financial support of the community to help it fulfill its commitment to enriching the lives of individuals, strengthening families and building inclusive communities. The Boys & Girls Club’s mission is provide appropriate and diversified programs and activities that serve to attract and hold area youth to the Club, providing an environment that teaches children the skills needed to build positive lives, attitudes and behaviors.
“The new foosball table has already been and will continue to be a great contribution to the Norwood branch,” said Karin Kavanagh, development director for the Boys & Girls Club of Warwick. “I’d like to thank Mr. Meas for this thoughtful gesture and generous donation, which will both draw and excite the kids.”
