Area shelters for both the homeless and victims of domestic violence receive food and clothing donations from the many generous people in our community. The Junior Women's Club became aware of a need for art supplies to nurture the creativity of the children in residences and family support centers. Donations were collected throughout the summer at the Wilbraham Farmers Market and the response from the community exceeded our expectations. One recently retired art teacher was thrilled to find a home for her many treasures. Children brought us crayons, markers, and paint. We received an amazing variety of both tools and crafting items from scissors and glue to pipe cleaners and google eyes. As a result, six centers in the local area each received a large bin full of art and craft supplies. The donations were received with surprise and pleasure, and Club members hope they bring much enjoyment and enrichment to the residents.
