Philly Game Forge is collecting gifts for kids at CHOP again

It's the shared workspace's second Holiday Social. Last year, more than $6,000 worth of gifts were collected.

It’s time for the Philly Game Forge’s Holiday Social, version 2.0.
For the second year, the shared workspace for game developers (and other makers now, too) is having a holiday party and charity toy drive for the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia on Friday, Dec. 11. (Entry fee is one, brand-new, unwrapped toy.)
Last year, they collected more than $6,000 worth of toys, said PHL Collective’s Nick Madonna.
The party will be at the Forge (239 Chestnut St.).
While there, you can jam out to live music from Philly’s own Pixel8ter. Food will be provided, and attendees will have the opportunity to be able to play some the games that Philly Game Forge has produced so far.
