The Story

In honor of Black History Month, and the recent release of the ground-breaking movie, Black Panther (which has the fifth highest-grossing opening weekend in Hollywood history), Marco's Pizza in Lufkin is accepting donations to purchase Black Panther toys for Lufkin Pre-K classes.

Play is how children learn about the world around them. Play in the classroom builds social skills, problem solving skills, and motor skills. Black Panther is the first movie that many children will see of a black superhero, so we want to give local children the opportunity to play with toys from this record-breaking movie. Studies have shown that when children have the opportunity to play with toys that look more like themselves that it builds self-esteem. Having Black Panther toys in the classroom will give African American children the opportunity to see themselves as heroes, kings, and warriors like in the movie. Studies have also shown that playing with toys where the characters are of other races nurtures compassion in students. 

Our goal is $1,400, but we would be excited to exceed that amount! Thank you for donating to this cause!
