General Mills Donates Games to All Alameda ES Students

Nearly 250 problem-solving games were given to students to help them develop math and critical thinking skills.

Alameda students play with games donated by General Mills before taking them home.

Alameda Elementary wants to improve its students' math scores, and General Mills, the school's Join-A-School partner, figured out a way to help.

General Mills held a game drive over the summer and collected nearly 250 math-focused, problem-solving games for students. The students each got a game to take home at the beginning of this school year. The hope is that they'll hone their math, counting and logic skills while having fun with family playing games like dominoes, SkipBo, Uno and chess.

"We want to thank General Mills and their employees for holding a game drive that provided every student at Alameda with a game that supports math and critical thinking skills," said Principal Alice Braden. "They worked with the school and aligned their donation to our school's improvement plan."
