Art supply drive for Preston's league!
As our final Pack activity of the year we will be doing a service project collection of art supplies and money for Preston's League.
Preston's League is a 501 C-3 charitable organization committed to providing basic necessities to patients and their families through a weekly wish list program within the Duke Pediatric Bone Marrow Department. This organization was created by The Winslows' in memory of their son, Preston, who passed away following a long battle fighting Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
One of the best things that can be shared with the patients and their families are art supplies because they provide not only a source of entertainment and creativity while hospitalized, but an invaluable, cherished keepsake to families of their child's art.
Please help us collect as much as we can to support this great cause! You can bring items to the next den meeting (look for the large collection box!), bring them to the end of the year celebration or you can feel free to bring items by my house 217 Enstone Court Hillsborough. Any questions just ask!
Thanks so much for your support!
Some of the most useful items for the patients are as follows:
- canvases - varying sizes
- colored pencils
- washable paint
- paint brushes
- watercolor paints
- paint pallettes
- heavy duty drawing pads
