Art Supply Drive and Bake Sale- Allie's Mitzvah Project

IMG_6043.jpg

Allie has decided to do her Mitzvah project to support Ann’s Place and the art programs. Here is what she has to say:

“Hi! My name is Allie Levine. For my mitzvah project, I chose to help Ann's Place. Our family, like so many others, has been touched by the plague of cancer.  Ann's Place is a community-based cancer support program located in Danbury, CT.  It offers counseling, support groups, and wellness activities at no charge.  It's a nonprofit serving CT and Hudson Valley, NY. 

My project is Allie's Art-To-Go! I will be collecting specific art supplies and then assembling them to be given to people in the art classes. It will mean a lot to them to have their own kit to take home.  I am hoping to collect enough for 3 classes which will help 45 people!”

If you would like to donate items, her list includes:

  • 45-Strathmore 400 Series Sketch Pad, 9in x 12in, 100 sheets

  • 45-Arteza Or Other Professional Drawing Sketch Pencils, Set of 12

  • 45-Faber-Castell Dust-Free Erasers

  • 45-Emraw Or Other Single Hole Pencil Sharpener with Receptacle

  • 45-General Graphite Sticks, Pack of 4, Assorted

  • 45-General White Charcoal Sticks, Pack of 4, Assorted

  • 45-Strathmore 400 Series Toned Grey Sketch Pad, 9in x 12in, 50 sheets

You can find these items online here:

Donated items can be dropped off at Ann’s Place and Temple Beth Elohim.

She will also raise funds at a Bake Sale! Come buy tasty things:

Pilates for Pink

Join The Pilates Advantage for wellness fun while doing great things for Ann’s Place!

Sign up or learn more here.

Here is what they have to say…

“As we celebrate our 11th Anniversary here at The Pilates Advantage it is time for us to give back....
 
That said I am asking for your help in supporting Ann's Place which provides comfort, support, and resources to people living with cancer and their loved ones. They serve over 1100 active clients of all ages, with all types of cancer across Connecticut and eastern New York state - free of charge!  Supporting  Ann's Place is close to our hearts because we’ve had several clients affected by all types of cancer, especially breast cancer. I have personally witnessed how this devastating disease affects not only the individual, but all family members and friends. Many of our clients have received support from Ann's Place as 47% of Ann’s Place annual budget goes to help local breast cancer patients and their families.  
 
When we contacted them, we were informed that one of their donors was unable to support Ann’s Place this year leaving a $7,500 shortfall specifically for their breast cancer support groups. Let's rally together to help bridge the gap!!”

Thank you!!
