  • The Playhouse Serves Families in New Ways

  • During this season of giving, please consider donating to help us include books and recipe ingredients in our monthly Play Kits. These kits provide safe, at-home fun and learning for kids with all the materials and instructions for 10 to 12 activities and enough supplies for at least two kids. We’ve made 11 different kits and distributed over 1000 boxes since May.More than 60% are given away free to families in need through The Playhouse and local agencies. We love to include books and ingredients for recipes, but they really drive up the budget, so all donations to the project received in December will be used for that purpose.

    Donations to the Play Kit Project go to the cost of materials for the kits. We are very grateful to the Farris Foundation Home Community Fund, a component fund of the North Carolina Community Foundation; the Kennedy-Herterich Foundation; and the Clabough Foundation for their generous support of the Play Kit project. Grants from these foundations underwrite the labor costs to design and assemble the kits. 

    Checks may be made to The Children’s Playhouse and mailed to 400 Tracy Circle, Boone, NC 28607. If you would like donate online, you can give through the Paypal Giving Fund here (no fees), on Facebook here, or through our Give Lively campaign here.
