GameStop Teams up With Sony to Give Consoles to Ronald McDonald House Charities


GameStop has announced that they are going to be joining forces with Sony in order to help provide the PS4 to families in need through Ronald McDonald House Charities. They're putting the considerable resources available to them together so that families of all situations can enjoy gaming.

GameStop is joining Sony in providing PS4 bundles to families in need through Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Sony and GameStop are going set up 180 PS4 bundles throughout North America in Ronald McDonald Houses to be able to provide a little bit of extra joy and happiness to those in need. Each PS4 bundle will come with two DualShock 4 controllers and either Little Big Planet 3, Driveclub, MLB 15: The Show or many other great titles. Being situated where they are, inside Ronald McDonald houses, they'll be accessible an estimated 500,000 families.

The Ronald McDonald House Charities Vice President and COO Shelia Musolino was very surprised by the gracious offer from the two companies, and explained why these PS4's will be an important addition to their framework.

We are extremely thankful to GameStop and PlayStation for providing game consoles to Ronald McDonald Houses across the country. Our Houses allow families to support their children every step of the way. And, play areas in each House allow children experiencing similar situations to play together helping them cope with the trauma of their illness.

The Ronald McDonald House Charities offers accommodations to the families of hospitalized children so that they might have a place to stay that's close by and that helps to negate any additional expenses. Having family around can have a very positive influence on recovery, so they provide a means to stay close with no cost. The addition of a PS4 to these houses should prove to add a reprieve from stress, and add a bit of joy to those staying in their houses.
