Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Empowering youth through the sport of table tennis.
Tables for Life is committed to improving the lives of every child in all of our programs, especially those children at risk.
We donate ping pong tables, rackets, and equipment to community centers, churches, boys and girls clubs, and foster care facilities.
Ping pong is a sport that everyone can play regardless of size, age, and athletic ability and sports participation increases a child's self esteem, focus, socialization skills, and goal setting ability.
Although our programs include athletes who want to compete in tournaments, our primary focus is connecting with at risk kids who want to learn to play ping pong recreationally in a fun, yet structured setting.
Through our Racket Up programs, Tables for Life coaches teach basic table tennis skills, from as simple as bouncing a ball on a racket to the same drills done by world champions. With every level they achieve, they learn how to set goals and how to become accountable to attain them. Our coaches encourage their progress, connecting over a game of ping pong, and this is the true foundation their lives can be built on.
