Calling all gamers: Volunteer to play videogames with kids at St. Christopher’s Hospital

Gamers Outreach, a Michigan-based nonprofit, is in search of “Player 2” volunteers for the North Philly hospital. Name an cooler volunteering gig, we'll wait.

The Michigan-based nonprofit Gamers Outreach started the program in 2015.

In 2015, Ann Arbor, Mich.-based nonprofit Gamers Outreach started a pilot program called “Player 2” at Michigan’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.

The goal of the program was to help set up videogames for hospitalized children, play alongside them and provide technical support for the “GO Karts” (Gamers Outreach Kart), a portable, medical-grade gaming kiosk the nonprofit builds and distributes to hospitals across in the country.

For those Philly gamers with interest in volunteering time, the organization has put out a call for volunteers at seven medical facilities in the country, including one in Philly: St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children.

Volunteers are required to distribute games to patients throughout a hospital, provide minor tech support and, of course, play games with kids.
