$0.25 of every patron’s admission fee will be donated all month long

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.— Starting today, 1984 Arcade in downtown Springfield is donating $0.25 to Ozarks Food Harvest for each paid admission during Nov.

The arcade — at Walnut and Jefferson, across from the YMCA — is open 4 to 11 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, and will also be collecting additional monetary donations for Ozarks Food Harvest.

The Food Bank’s network of pantries, feeding sites and direct-service programs currently serve approximately 80,000 individuals each month. Ozarks Food Harvest says one in four children are now food insecure in the 28 counties it services.

Patrons can enjoy more than 50 classic video games and pinball machines, with a $5 admission fee.

1984 held a one-day holiday fundraiser for OFH in 2007, raising $500 for Ozarkers in need.
