Art Bags Update

Tracy McPartland - Co-Executive Director

Wow!! The response to our offer of Art Bags, providing art supplies for kids who are at home during the COVID-19 outbreak, has been phenomenal! We have been working feverishly to get the bags put together and into the hands of the kids in need.  Since our offer went out, we have received 163 requests for bags to serve 403 kids. Clearly, there is a big need in our community and kids of all ages are using art not only to help pass the time but to express their thoughts and feelings through drawing, painting and creating. If you visit our Face Book pages you can see some of the art that has already been created through this project.

To help fund the Art Bags project, we created a GoFundMe campaign and are grateful to all of you who have contributed. We continue to need contributions as we are still receiving requests. Our hope is that we can continue to fulfill all requests and we need your help to make that possible. Please continue to share this information with those who you think would be interested in bringing art supplies to kids in need.
