The holiday season is quickly approaching and Artsplace will once again be sponsoring two important programs:
Artsplace is sponsoring a “Giving Tree” of art supplies for Cheshire Youth and Social Services. The supplies can vary from a box of crayons to a set of pastels or a pad of paper. Any new art-related item will be appreciated, large or small. All will be donated to children of Cheshire families experiencing a financial hardship.
Those interested can bring art supplies to Artsplace, 1220 Waterbury Rd., Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and before noon on Dec. 2. Artsplace is closed on Fridays.
Artsplace is collecting new pajamas for children — newborn through age 18 — to be distributed throughout the state as needed. Children’s books, new or “gently” used, are also being collected for children as part of the Pajama Program.
Those interested can bring their donations to Artsplace, 1220 Waterbury Rd., Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and before noon on Dec. 10. Artsplace is closed on Fridays.
For additional information on both programs, call (203) 272-2787.
