One of the core components of the Junior Board’s mission is raising funds to provide our students with additional materials at the end of their summer and afterschool programs. This is a unique aspect of Art With a Heart and for the last two years the recession has severely limited our funds for this activity. But over the last 9 months, the current Junior Board raised almost $1500 to provide materials for every child in the 2013 summer program: over 500 students. In addition the JB was selected by DoSomething.com in a national competition to receive a $500 grant to help continue their work. This grant will be used to help provide materials for students in afterschool programs this Fall. Look out for a blog post later this summer by some of the JB members describing their experiences with AWaH.
