Every year I collect art supplies around the holidays to donate to kids in our area with the hope that it will inspire creativity. This year I have decided to work with the local, nonprofit organization, Teen Empowering Network. Teen Empowering Network Inc. is a an organization that helps foster parents get the items they need for foster children coming into their care. Several fundraisers are held throughout the year to help achieve this goal. One of the events, Bingo & Spaghetti, the kids get a great a meal and a canvas to paint instead of a bingo card like the adults. It is fundraisers like these that keep nonprofit organizations going!
If you are interested in helping, here is a list of the items they would be so grateful to have donated.
· Paint for canvases
· Paint Brushes
· Colored pencils
· Colored paper
· Art kits for kids ages 5 to 16 years old
· Plain Canvas
Please feel free to drop off the donations by my office between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., below is my address.
The Wick, 1612 Newcastle St., Suite #205

If I am not in the office you can always leave it by my door and I will grab it the next morning. However, if you come when I am there you can pick up a Peppermint Land sticker as a thank you from the tree.
