Arts Alliance Receives $500 Donation from the La Plata Rotary Club

Funds Go Toward the Student Art Boxes Project
 

On Wednesday, August 19, Jim Cook, President of the La Plata Rotary Club, presented a check for $500 to Robert Rausch, President of the Charles County Arts Alliance.  The money was used toward the purchase of 400 art boxes and supplies that will be provided to kindergarten through third grade students in Charles County.  

The boxes contain scissors, #2 pencils, erasers, crayons, colored pencils, glue sticks and bottled glue, and cost approximately $5 each.  The donation from the La Plata Rotary Club allowed the Arts Alliance to purchase an additional 100 boxes and supplies over last year's project.
 
The boxes were delivered to the Children's Aid Society to be included with their student backpack distribution.
