Happy spring.....almost!


We know it's barley spring, but we already have our annual art auction on our minds. This year will be our FIFTH ANNUAL ART AUCTION FUNDRAISER! Right now, we are looking to form a planning team to make this our most successful fundraiser yet!
We need 10 people to help with
finding a venue and planning the event
generating LOTS of interest
* public relations/ advertising

Team members will meet initially in person in April and then mainly through email and conference calls. Our auction takes place in the fall, generally in October.

Our winter has been filled with packing art packs, visiting shelters, and connecting with a lot of great people! Here are some of the highlights. We:

Partnered with YENS,The Studios at Porter Mill and Wicked Art Bar for a paint night and Holiday Fundraiser.

Made a return visit to the kids of the Peabody Library Y.A.K group to fill art packs for shelters that are part of Citizens for Adequate Housing in Peabody.

Received a HUGE donation from Julia Michaud, whose story is on our HFC Change Makers page, over 1,000 art supplies!

Met a new friend, Teagen Davenport, whose story is also on our new HFC Change Makers page. She just turned 7 and made helping Hope For Creativity a part of her birthday celebration!

Last week, we partnered with Emerson College's Alternative Spring Break program to bead safety pins and to fill 60 artpacks that we delivered to Boston ABCD and two shelters that are a part of the Dimock Center in Roxbury.

We were also contacted by the Kabel Family. Sarah, a fifth grader at Swampscott Middle School wanted to get involved in community service and now her brother Noah is helping too! They are having an art supply drive in Swampscott from now until March 21st, are gathering people for our next family packing day and beading safety pins for our new line of bracelets! They have drop off boxes at Stanley School, Hadley School and the Middle School. We recently visited the fourth grade leaders at Stanley and they are exited to help! If you want to make a donation to the Kabel's drive, contact us!

We have a lot of exciting things coming up in the spring, so stay tuned for our April E-News!
