The Game Loft needs help
Posted by WJWalton on Fri 23 of Dec., 2011 07:26 PST
The Game Loft (whose link you may have seen in the left column of the site and blog for over six years now) is a nonprofit organization in Belfast, Maine that helps area youth by providing them with hot meals, friendship, safety, and encouragement to stay in school, using games like Dungeons & Dragons as "bait."

The program has recently lost its funding, however, and is in desperate need of help. The Bangor Daily News has the full story. Rayt and Patricia Estabrook have been doing great things for young people who are very much in need. If you can help them in any way, please contact them.
