We loved partnering with the North Texas chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help them get ready for a fun Art Party they were hosting for some local children! Make-A-Wish Foundation works to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Once a month, Make-A-Wish of North Texas hosts an Art Party for the children and their siblings at their facility. The party is a chance for kids to take a break from treatment, surround themselves with support from other children and families also struggling with illness and create hand-crafted art using their imaginations!
Make-A-Wish is an amazing organization filled with compassionate, hard-working people, and they came to us requesting help with the organization of their art closets where they store the materials needed for each party. We were excited to help by installing elfa Shelving. The morning we installed, they were preparing for an Art Party that very afternoon, so we knew the shelves were going to be useful immediately!
Kelly S. from our Southlake store, who helped with this installation, has a special place in her heart for Make-A-Wish because one of her daughter’s friends is a Wish Kid. While at Make-A-Wish helping to install the shelving, we were able to see some of this girl’s beautiful artwork, as well as other pieces from a recent Art Party. These are some truly talented kids, and we were so excited to see that this organization gives them the tools, opportunity and loving environment to express themselves and showcase their work.
Thanks, Make-A-Wish, for including us in your world for a morning!
