Studio 1219 BUSY BOX
Studio 1219 is making Cecil’s Williams dream come true!
“Art Supplies for kids that arrive at Safe Horizons a shelter for Moms and Children in Port Huron.”
We need “Clean” Empty Shoe Boxes!
And if you wish a $15 BUSY BOX donation will give one child all of the quality ART supplies pictured above!
Each child will get it on arrival and be able to take the box with them when they leave. Stop in to the studio to donate or for more information call 810-984-2787.
June 2012-From the time I was a little girl my parents gave me a Busy Box each Christmas. Always filled with new and exciting Arts and Craft supplies. When Cecil came in and spoke of the children with big eyes watching him paint a mural on the walls while wanting and needing Art and Craft supplies at Safe Horizons I knew a BUSY BOX would be a perfect fit. Today the wonderful Manager at Springgrove Variety in Marysville gave us 26% off of everything we picked for the BUSY BOX. I filled my Shoe Box’s with the items you see above, all nice quality. Even a teenager will benefit if they want one, the spiral sketch book is thick and heavy duty and can also be used as a journal. Joe and I started the donations with 2 Busy Box’s today, and at work we recieved enough donations for 10 more Boxes from our Studio 1219 visitors and members.
It’s a wonderful start to a worthy project for children in our area.
I am so pleased to partner up with Cecil who does so much for all of us.
Please consider passing this along to anyone you feel may want to help.
