 Give6’s Video Game Drive Official Launch and Ribbon Cutting

Thursday, July 10, 4:30 p.m. at Children’s Home Society Family Treasures Thrift Shop

Joshua Joel Fletcher has given so much to people he came into contact with and even those he never met. Although Joshua is no longer with us, his spirit lives through the mission and causes of his nonprofit organization.

This year, Joshua would have turned six years old. To commemorate his legacy, Joshua Joel SMA Life Inc. presents its inaugural video game drive, “Give6”.

On Thursday, July 10 at 4:30 p.m., Joshua Joel SMA Life Inc. is hosting its “Give6 Video Game Drive Official Launch” at the Children’s Home Society Family Treasures Thrift Shop, 710 N. Main St. The ribbon cutting will take place at 5:30 p.m.

Join us as we collect new and used video games, consoles and accessories to give to underprivileged children this holiday season. There will be a donation station to collect contributions at the launch.

Between now and the end of November, individuals can drop off donations at any one of the following three drop sites:

  • O2B Kids Super Center, 6680 W. Newberry Rd.
  • Children’s Home Society Family Treasures Thrift, 710 N. Main St.
  • Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce, 300 E. University Ave., Suite 100 – in the commerce building

Did you know that an estimated 23.8% of persons living in Alachua County live below the poverty level compared to the 15.6% at the state level? Give a child a notable gift this Holiday Season by donating your video game(s) and/or gaming system(s) that now sits on the shelf. For alternative donation methods, visit www.jojosmalife.com.
