Due to COVID-19, schools have been closed and students are now home for a minimum of 3 weeks. Children are no longer recieving formal education and Detroit families lack educational resources while their children are home.
Arts & Scraps is partnering with Brilliant Detroit and Mint Artists Guild to deploy at least 5,000 creative learning supply kits at no cost for Detroit families to use during this quarantine. These kits will relieve stress and anxiety for families while providing creative stimulation and educational exercises for children.
Each creative learning supply kit contains repurposed materials for families to create and learn with. Materials in these kits would end up filling landfills, but Arts & Scraps is working to ensure these materials become much needed resources in the community during a time of crisis. The kits include general items, coloring pages from Mint Artists Guild and materials for creative learning for all ages. Instructional tutorial videos demonstrating kit use will be available at www.artsandscraps.org as a resource for families. Additionally, access to information about available free online educational resources will be made available.
One creative learning supply kit is designed to serve a family with up to 3 children for 3 weeks. Each kit costs $10 to produce and distribute. We currently have funding to deploy 2,000 kits. A donation of $10 will make a big difference during this time of urgent need and will provide a family with educational resources for 3 weeks. If we successfully reach our fundraising goal we will be able to provide Detroit families with 3,000 more creative learning supply kits!
Thank you for your time and consideration. If you are unable to donate at this time but would like to help us reach our goal, please share this campaign with your friends and family. We appreciate your kindness and support.
