Nobody Appreciates the Value of Coins More Than Gamers

GameStop stores in Western Washington are asking customers to round up their change to support GameStop Gives charity partners including Seattle Children’s.

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed unprecedented stress on Seattle Children’s and now more than ever, we need support. Children’s hospitals are on the front lines, helping these children deal with any complications they may face if they contract the virus.

Before there were any confirmed cases in the United States, Seattle Children’s anticipated the potential for an outbreak in our region. We proactively established an incident command center on January 22 to support advanced planning and to coordinate our actions. We also activated a Special Isolation Unit at our hospital to care for patients showing potential symptoms before there were even cases in the community.

Anticipating needs and activating systemic responses help provide for the ongoing safety and care of our patients. The challenges created by COVID-19 are broad and constantly evolving. They will also be enduring. Support to the Greatest Needs Fund enables Seattle Children’s to be nimble – so we can quickly innovate and continue to deliver care safely and effectively. The Greatest Needs Fund is overseen by Seattle Children’s leadership team, which directs resources where they are needed most.

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 and families treated at Seattle Children’s.
