Give “Kits for Kids” This Giving Tuesday!

Consider a gift to the Arts Center for #GivingTuesday and help support Kits for Kids! Our fun-filled art kits have been available for purchase since this summer, but with your help, we can distribute them FREE OF COST to those in need. Thanks to meaningful partnerships with community organizations like Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence, The Willow Domestic Violence Center, Communities in Schools, and Centro Hispano, we have young makers ready and waiting for these kits, so give a gift today and help make sure Art is For EVERYONE and Art is For EVERYWHERE.

Research has long shown the important effect creative outlets have on mental health and this pandemic has made access to the arts more important than ever. The need for safe, educational and accessible non-screen-based activities is imperative to the well-being of the youth in our community and the Arts Center is uniquely poised to make that happen. But your help is needed! Art kits require supplies, educational programming, and staff time to build, design, and distribute. Your gift will help place kits in the hands of children at a time when it is needed the most. 

Donate today through the Douglas County Community Foundation’s Giving For Good campaign and 50% of your gift will be matched!
