Port Huron, MI — Kids bored? How about a new bag of games, crafts, and sports equipment every week to keep them busy? That is exactly what local recreation departments are doing for children in the community.
“Rec on the Go” bags are stocked with materials to keep kids active and are available for free at various locations. Children need not be present to get the bags. One bag is available per family.
In Port Huron, the bags can be picked up at the McMorran Pro Shop on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., Mondays at 10:30 a.m. at Optimist Park and 2:00 p.m. at Garfield Elementary School. On Tuesdays, the bags can be picked up at 10:30 a.m. at Knox Field and at 2:30 p.m. at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School.
The Marysville Community Center will be handing out the bags on Mondays from 11a.m. to 2 p.m. They can also be picked up at Greig Park in St. Clair from 10-11 a.m. on Tuesdays.
The bags are limited in quantity and are given out on a first-come, first-serve basis. The bags have been made available to area families through a partnership between Sport Port Huron, the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation, the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan, and the Community Foundation of St. Clair County.
