Our Annual Day of Service

Here at Sledgehammer Games, we honor and respect our country’s veterans. Oftentimes, after returning from duty, veterans experience hardships most of us can’t possibly imagine. Upon returning from service, It’s hard to find work, earn a living wage, and sometimes they are left homeless or without basic necessities. Many of them have families they must provide for and don’t always know where to turn for help. That’s why each year, Activision organizes a Day of Service to help serve veterans and f...

Halloween is an especially magical time for kids. For families facing economic hardships and homelessness, however, Halloween can be extremely saddening and stressful. ...
