Salvation Army Offering Free Games to Youths

(Michigan City, IN) - The Salvation Army of Michigan City is now offering a new activity for youths in Michigan City.


On the first Friday of every month from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, Michigan City youth are invited at no cost to play video games, online games, and board games with other children from the community.


Snacks are provided and registration is not necessary, but parents of children under 7 years old are asked to accompany their child throughout the event.  Officials said the games are age appropriate and monitored by trained volunteers. Major Dale Simmons said those who attend can learn sportsmanship, leadership, and teamwork by working and playing together.

“As an organization, The Salvation Army looks to meet needs specific to our community, and these family nights are a great way for us to provide a fun, safe way for local kids to connect and get involved,” he said.

Other programs at The Salvation Army for Michigan City centered around and for those growing up in the community include a diaper bank, free summer camp and a weekend backpack feeding program.
