The irascible Oscar Wilde once opined that, “All art is quite useless.” While we understand the importance of being earnest (see what I did there?), we respectfully disagree with Wilde on this point. In fact, we’re going in the complete opposite direction. In the bleak midwinter, you can put some color back into the world by joining us at Brush Crazy to “Paint for a Cause.”
The team at Brush Crazy has made it as easy as 1-2-3 (think of it as paint and donate by numbers!):
1. Visit Brush Crazy on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2020, show them this post or just tell them you’re painting for NNEMAP. Drop in anytime (and bring the family–it’s kid-friendly!).
2. Paint whatever item you choose (staff is there to help get you started and give you pointers along the way)
3. NNEMAP Food Pantry gets a generous portion of the proceeds as a cash donation.
You make art, NNEMAP Food Pantry gets money. THAT is useful art! Come join us on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2020 anytime between 10am and 6pm. Chase the winter blues (and Dorian Grays?) away and support NNEMAP Food Pantry. Win-win!!!
We welcome your support any time. We won’t even make you paint for it. You can always make a secure online donation here. Thank you for your support. Every donation makes a difference in someone’s life!
NNEMAP Food Pantry will be
CLOSED Saturday, May 25 and Monday, May 27, 2019
in honor of the Memorial Day holiday.
We will be open for business on Tuesday, May 28. Please have a fun and safe holiday weekend!
In case you haven’t heard, NNEMAP Food Pantry was nominated to participate in Aetna’s “Voices of Health Program,” a voting-based competition with a top prize of $20,000 (runner-up gets $10,000–not too shabby)!
