Throughout the third quarter of 2021, Wilde for Arizona and Free Arts are partnering together to host an art supply drive. Free Arts is a locally based program that employs a trauma informed approach in all programs for children who have experienced ongoing trauma such as abuse, neglect and/or homelessness. Research shows that resilience is built when children engage in positive experiences and are supported by caring adults. At Free Arts, they provide safe, positive opportunities for children to engage with trained, trauma-informed volunteer mentors to provide support. This means that Free Arts staff, volunteer mentors, and teaching artists are trained to recognize the impact of trauma and approach their interactions with children and one another in a way that is empathetic, supportive, and resists re-traumatization.
If you would like to participate in donating art supplies and other necessities to enhance the experience for children and volunteers at Free Arts, an AmazonSmile Wish List has been created for you to choose from to donate throughout the 3rd quarter. The donated items will be shipped directly to Free Arts as a part of our partnership. If you would like to drop off items at any one of our office locations, you are more than welcome to do so.
