Art Angels Spreads Joy With Salvation Army

Art Angels Spreads Joy With Salvation Army

At the November 15th general meeting, Sanford Brush & Palette Club members came bearing gifts. Bags and bags of new art supplies were piled into a crate near the elevator doors, which quickly overflowed into a larger pile on the floor.

The supplies were collected for The Salvation Army of Lee County‘s Christmas “Joy Program” which provides toys and clothing for Lee County children. The donated art supplies are part of our Art Angels program and will supplement some childrens’ gifts, filling where items are needed. It’s our way of continuing our mission of promoting interest in the visual arts, while also helping out another local nonprofit organization and supporting our fellow (younger!) artists.

A huge THANK YOU to our generous members for helping in this endeavor.
