GameStop Gives to Penn State Children’s Hospital

GameStop stores in Central PA are asking customers to round up their change to support GameStop Gives charity partners including Penn State Children’s Hospital.

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed unprecedented stress on kids and families at Penn State Children’s Hospital and now more than ever, we need support. For kids with medical needs, this pandemic complicated and sometimes delayed the care they need. By partnering with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, GameStop is helping transform how we meet these urgent needs brought on by the pandemic. Kids can’t wait for a cure. Kids need our help, now.

Thank you, GameStop, for making a tremendous difference in the lives of kids like Owen.

Owen is showing off a preemie diaper —just like the ones he needed when he was born 14 weeks early. At four months old, Owen developed necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), which severely damaged his intestines. He needed
surgery to remove the damaged intestines. As a result, nutrition became a major challenge. At age four, Owen was finally healthy enough to begin solid foods and underwent intense therapy to learn how to eat, starting with just a cake sprinkle! Today, Owen enjoys all kinds of foods.Pizza is his favorite! In addition to Pediatric Intensive Care Unit equipment and programs like Child Life, Owen also benefited from a CMN-funded medical camp — he learned to ride a bike!

Since 2018, GameStop has provided over $10,000 in support for Penn State Children’s Hospital through the point of sale campaigns, product donations, Extra Life, and more.
