HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

We think art is an essential outlet for kids. It helps them learn and grow in important ways, but many schools no longer have the funding to continue these kinds of programs. By donating new or gently used art supplies, you will be helping kids in the Boston Public Schools make art projects, have fun, and learn using creative methods, kids who otherwise wouldn't have these opportunities.

DESCRIPTION

Help Boston students get the art supplies they need to grow their minds and their creativity. ARCK welcomes donations of new and gently used art supplies to make every day come to life for kids who don't otherwise have visual arts programs. For more on the current wishlist of supplies, click here.


ITEMS NEEDED

1. New or gently used art supplies (or the money to purchase them)

2. Transportation to make the drop off
