The Vida de Oro Foundation, a 501©(3) non-profit located in North Sacramento will be giving away 200 boxes filled with art supplies and snacks for parents to use with their children while at home.
Co-hosted buy District 2 Councilman Alan Warren, the art and snack boxes are designed to assist children to stay active and creative in addition to their online classes. Some of the stores have run of out of art supplies and it may be a while before they re-stock. Thankfully the Vida de Oro Foundation planned for this event weeks ago and was able to purchase the supplies thanks to the gracious business sponsors in the community. “I want to thank those North Sacramento businesses willing to step up during theses challenging times,” says Mina Perez, President/CEO of the Vida de Oro Foundation. “It’s not easy for our schools and parents, we get that. So we decided to step up to the plate and help out.”
Included in the box is a bottle of glue, a box of crayons, coloring book, felt material, buttons, colorful pipe cleaners, fabric appliques, whimsical beads, yarn, sea shells, construction paper and some pre-packaged snacks with a bottle of water.
These art supplies are additions to other art supplies the families may have at home to continue that special project. “We have put together 200 hundred of these boxes and they will be given out free on Saturday, July 25 from 2 to 4 pm at the Robertson Community Center, 3525 Norwood Ave,” adds Perez. “Because of the limited quantity, we are asking for interested parents to contact us to reserve their box.”
Interested parents must live in City Council District 2 and can reserve a box by calling (916) 914-4623 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
