AbleGamers Donates to Operation Supply Drop’s Independence Day Charity Drive

July 2, 2013 -

The AbleGamers Charity has donated multiple customized controllers powered by Evil Controllers to Operation Supply Drop, another charity that gives video-game related care packages to soldiers serving in places like Afghanistan and to injured veterans recovering at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. The AbleGamers gear will be sent to Walter Reed as part of Operation Supply Drop's PIXEL FIREWORKS July 4th care package.

"As a service disabled veteran myself, I’m always thrilled when AbleGamers is presented with an opportunity to support our troops," said Mark Barlet, President and Founder of the AbleGamers Charity. "These controllers are some of the best custom hardware available for gamers that need assistance using an Xbox. I’m honored we were able to participate in the day’s festivities and grateful to Operation Supply Drop for the chance to get disabled veteran gamers back into the game."

"We’re big fans of the AbleGamers Charity," said Stephen Machuga, Founder of Operation Supply Drop. "As Operation Supply Drop is transitioning from a wartime to peacetime mission working with injured soldiers recovering in military hospitals, teaming up with AbleGamers Charity makes a lot of sense in keeping smiles on soldiers' faces through video gaming."

The AbleGamers Charity runs AbleGamers.com, which provides news and reviews on the accessibility of mainstream video game titles, as well as consultation on assistive technology. You can learn more about the organization at www.ablegamers.com.
