Announcing TLC's March Year of Service Project
Start spreading the news...TLC is leaving for New York on our March Year of Service project! We're couldn't be more excited to partner with our next organization, Materials for the Arts (MFTA), on a two-day project at their art supply warehouse in Queens.
MFTA provides thousands of New York City arts and cultural organizations, public schools and community arts programs with the supplies they need to run and expand their programs. They gather supplies from companies and individuals who no longer need them and distribute them at no cost to artists and educators in need. The organizational model not only enriches arts education in the city, but it also keeps unwanted materials out of the waste stream and landfills. It’s a win-win all around!
TLC volunteers will spend Wednesday, March 21 and Thursday, March 22 helping MFTA organize their art supply warehouse and also assisting artists and educators who visit during the organization’s shopping day. If you’re interested in joining clients and friends who’ve already committed to the project, please contact Ashley Gunning at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-845-8484 x231.
We’ll be back later in March to recap!
