Level 257 And Namco USA Show Support For Our Troops
Operation Supply Drop, a nonprofit that assembles gamer care packages
to veterans and deployed US military across the world, and Level 257, a
destination for dining and elevated play, have partnered to bring
veterans and civilian supporters together this holiday season. From
November 28th through December 31st, area
residents are invited to donate new or gently used video games to
Operation Supply Drop. All donations will be taken at Level 257
adjacent to Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, IL. In solidarity, Level 257 will be making an in-kind donation to Operation Supply Drop to kick off the holiday season!
Supply Drop is a veteran support organization which through one of
their programs assembles videogame care packages filled with games,
products, apparel, and other exciting items. Once assembled, these
packages are sent to active duty & veterans deployed, those in
hospitals, and active military installations across the world.

The pyramid-shaped tree, hand made by the skilled craftsmen at NAMCO USA Inc.'s workshop, utilizes over 5,000 LED lights to re-create the original PAC-MAN™ arcade game board.Guests will be treated to a glass of spiced hot apple cider, a complimentary 30 minutes of game play, festive music, and more. The first 50 revelers will receive an exclusive, collectible PAC-MAN Santa hat, and all guests can enter into a no-cost raffle for lots of cool prizes. You don't want to miss out on this fun-filledevent!
Supply Drop recognizes that the love for all things gaming and geek is
just as pervasive in the military community as it is in the general
population. With geek culture as a focal point, Operation Supply Drop
works to foster a sense of community among veterans, military, and
civilian supporters. Their focus on military support, donations, and
games make for lasting friendships, awesome communities, and a whole lot
captures the magic of legendary video game and toy manufacturer Bandai
Namco in a resto-lounge setting by serving up a joyful combination of
American fusion food, craft cocktails and elevated play. With 36 craft
beers lines, seasonal craft cocktails, retro and newly released video
games, bowling, ping-pong and more, Level 257 is a play space that is
part chic urban lounge/part over-the-top rec room. Level 257 is adjacent
to the Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, IL, with guest entrance from the
