Filling the Void: Let's Create with GG
Gallery on Gazebo is issuing a call for supplies that feed the mind and heart.
How can you help? We will be asking for your generosity in collecting art & craft supplies for underserved K-5 youth. These will be packaged, as per COVID-19 guidelines, along with lesson plans, and delivered. Your donations can be placed in decorated boxes in to-be-named grocery and convenient stores. They will be labeled "Let's Create with GG," the I Spy project. Contact Lida Hood at Lrrhood@verizon.net for more specific information.
2020 PATRON DRIVE
Ends July 15th
We have annually awarded $5000 in scholarships, so with all the other expenses we have, many more dollars are needed. If you have already given, thank you; if not, please consider a donation, large or small. Thanks in advance. Marianne Krizner and Judy Crookston, co-chairs
The COLLABORATION SHOW was cancelled due to the Covid crisis. Discussions are in the works for it to possibly take place next year.
