Starting today and running through Friday we are holding an Arts & Crafts Supplies Drive for the kids of Newtown. My friend Becky Kern reached out to me to help put together a drive to help the The Angels on Earth organization in Newtown collect supplies. They have hundreds of children coming through the Save the Children program while their parents get the help they need. They are not at all worried about getting too many donations as they will happily leave these supplies behind for the teachers who will need them in the weeks ahead. As you finish up your shopping this week please help if you can by donating. We will be delivering the items to CT at the end of the week. Here is a list of items they have requested:
* Flat sheets of felt, all colors * Holiday craft kits * Small (4-5") round styrofoam balls for snowmen * Play-doh * Kids scissors * Small jars of paint (doing lots of paintings on white paper)
We are arranging several collection areas and will pick up all the supplies on Friday, December 21st by 1pm. The first locations are:
- Adirondack Appliance located at 67 West Ave in Saratoga Springs, and they are open Monday-Friday from 8:30am to 5pm.
- Bloom: A Movement Space: 153 Regent Street in Saratoga Springs
I will post new locations here as they become available, if you have a business and would like to be a collection location please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need any more information feel free to email me or Becky at Beckykernpr@gmail.com. Thanks so much for helping us! xoxo
