Feb 4, 2013 | ArtCares Book & Art Supplies Drive

ArtCares for Kids is collecting books and art supplies for children in hospital settings and students throughout Miami-Dade County.

The need is simple: children need books! Unfortunately many low-income children do not have them. Without books to read, literacy suffers; when literacy suffers, education and opportunities decline.

We need books! New or gently used children’s books from preschool to 12th grade (age appropriate).

Creativity is essential for self-expression. It fosters growth by providing opportunities to develop new ideas, promote new ways of thinking and problem-solve.

We need art supplies! — Such as colored pencils, tempera paints, brushes, watercolors, glitter glue, stickers, jewels, sketchbooks, canvases, and crayons.
