I find it sad and appalling that there are children in our community who can’t afford crayons or paper, and who have nobody to introduce them to the joys and comforts of the arts. In addition to my gift of cash and tools, I am volunteering my time and efforts to teach and inspire them through IS183’s Learning Through Arts program. I want to do my part to inspire and uplift these young minds while they are still so impressionable.
