Pinball Outreach Project: 'It's something they can do together'
PORTLAND, Ore. - Kids are going "retro" at a Northwest Portland gaming center. Students come down to the Pinball Outreach Project headquarters on weekdays after school and on weekends for some "Free Play" pinball.
Volunteer Greg Dunlap said the Pinball Outreach Project (or POP) also takes its pinball machines to patients at local children's hospitals and works with children's cancer charities.
He said it's more than a new spin on an old way of gaming.
"Their parents grew up with pinball, so it's something they can do together and both have fun with," Dunlap said.
