Laser Pegs, a leading firm behind LED construction toys, is donating 500 Laser Pegs Play Tables to Boys and Girls Clubs of America (BGCA).

The donation is valued at more than $229,000 and the tables will be used in Club game rooms to promote creativity, innovation and teamwork among children.

Each Play Table features a surface grid with 150 holes children can plug Laser Pegs into to begin building, while the holes function as a power source for individual pegs.

Laser Pegs CEO, Jon Capriola, said: "I am honoured to be able to enrich the amazing opportunities Boys and Girls Clubs create for children across the country by providing their locations with Laser Pegs.

"Children love playing with Laser Pegs because they can transform imagination into reality while building, and they can watch as their creation comes to life with light.

"The Play Table is perfect for a community play environment like those found at Boys and Girls Clubs because multiple children can use the table to build at the same time and they can learn while interacting with each other and Laser Pegs."

Jim Clark, president and CEO of Boys and Girls Clubs of America, added: "Thanks to the generosity of Laser Pegs, our kids will have a new and innovative opportunity to enhance their education and creativity.

"At BGCA, we are dedicated to building great futures for our youth. These kinds of 'fun with purpose' activities are key to our work, and we are grateful for this wonderful support."

Laser Pegs are recommended for children aged five and upwards.
