Give to Game only 2 weeks away!

Give to Game is two weeks away! I thought I'd let you know what to bring along with you:

#1. Food

If you plan on bringing a grocery bag of food for admission, get your paper bag ready and start filling it up! I went through my pantry already and was able to fill a bag with no problem.

Not sure what to give? The most requested items by the food bank are:
  • Canned meats like tuna, stew and chili (pop-tops preferred)
  • Canned vegetables
  • Pasta, pasta sauce
  • Beans
  • Rice
  • Healthy cereals
  • Peanut butter
  • Baby food
  • Baby formula
* All food collected will be donated to Abiding Love Food Pantry. 

#2. Cash

Admission is $20 at the door. We will also have opportunities for your to bid/raffle on items to help further support the Bastrop County Food Pantry. 

#3. Checkbook

Yes, I know we live in the digital age and checks are old-fashioned. However, having some checks handy will let you bid on items without worrying about how much cash you have in your pocket.

#4. Games

There will be a game library that anyone can use, as well as many other gamers bringing their own games. You can also bring your favorite games from your own collection.

#5. A Friend!!!

The more people that come to the event, the more successful it will be. So if you have a co-worker, friend, or family member who wants to help a good cause, bring them along and I can guarantee they will have a good time! 

Call all volunteers!

We are looking for volunteers to assist us in setting up the event, manning the registration desk, picking up donations, closing up each night of the event, final event clean-up, etc. In return we would like to offer our appreciation to these volunteers as well as our long time VIP donors with a pre-event open gaming night. The night of April 19th will be reserved gaming for our volunteers and VIP donors only. After set up all volunteers and donors will be allowed several hours of open gaming as well as getting first dibs on door prizes. 

Here is how you can participate in the extra night of gaming: 

* Sign up to volunteer for the event (man the registration booth, set-up, tear down, etc.). Interested volunteers are asked to email us at
