First-graders around Pickens County are bringing home a major source of family fun this week, as the 24th Judicial District District Attorney’s Office hands out board games for students.

Donors contributed a total of 220 games alongside cash donations, and the DA’s Office and Helping Families Initiative are delivering games to every Pickens County student in first grade.

The small surplus of donated games and cash donations will go toward next year’s board game initiative, which is aiming for collecting enough games for every first-grader in Pickens, Lamar and Fayette counties.

Donations are accepted all year round, and can be dropped off at the 24th Judicial District DA’s Office, 50 Court Square, Suite 200 in Carrollton.

Reform Elementary School students received their games Tuesday, Dec. 6. Students at Pickens Academy are getting their games Dec. 6, Aliceville Elementary is getting theirs Dec. 7 and Gordo Elementary is getting theirs Dec. 9.
