4th graders Playing It Forward

Members of the 4th grade class at a North Shore elementary school in Massachusetts gathered with Playing It Forward founder, David Cohen, to kick off their weeklong collection of sports equipment for disadvantaged children.  David had an opportunity to address over 90 students and answer questions about the organization and those that will be impacted by their efforts.  Cohen commented, “This was a terrific opportunity to visit with the students and to support their initiative.  It is quite powerful to see kids at this age interested in getting involved and giving back to those less fortunate.  I hope this is only the beginning of their community service and involvement and that these students will positively impact others in many ways in the years to come.”
