Donate Art Supplies to OPS
Support the artists at Our Place and Choices by donating aart supplies. Do you have any new or gently used art supplies, especially wood carving tools, sitting unused in a closet? Many of our family members are very talented artists but lack the supplies to create their projects.
Please drop off your art supplies at Reception at Our Place 919 Pandora. There are also opportunities for community artists to share their knowledge with budding young artists at Choices interested in developing new skills. Phone Patricia for program volunteer opportunities 250-388-7112 ext 263.
