MLK Day of Service: Monday, January 20, 2020

Thank you to our dedicated partners and volunteers! We are fully booked with volunteers on Monday but can still use our help. 

Please consider donating to Art Sphere, Inc. for art materials which volunteers on MLK Day will sort into plastic art bag kits and distribute this winter semester. 

Over the past five years we have distributed thousands of art sets for our students to make art from home particularly loved during the cold winter months.

We use accept donations through PayPal, GoFundMe, our Amazon Smile account, and through our website here. Donations are tax deductible and directly support our cause.
