Thank yous

“I wanted to take an opportunity to say thank you to you and your organization for your generosity.  On Thursday, June 21, during our 5th Grade Awards Ceremony, your Art Bags For Kids were given to students that have shown exceptional skills in the area of fine arts.  Your bags showed these students that art is important.  Your bags showed them that there is value in their artwork.  Your bags showed these scholars that they matter. ”
