WHAT'S YOUR SUMMER FANTASY?
A road trip? Swimming with your friends? Diving off a diving board?
In the drawings on the left, you'll see the summer fantasies of the Apple Arts kids. Unfortunately, many of these fantasies will remain just that.
With no school, no camp and parents who are in crisis, many of the Apple Arts youth face boredom and negative temptation during those long summer days. Often, this leads to dangerous and unproductive activities.
We are going to change all that. Because this past year has been our most successful (Check out pictures here), AND we are doing incredible projects AND the kids are having a blast AND our volunteers and Junior Board members are more involved than ever AND everyone has been working so hard to make this program outstanding....WE DON'T WANT TO STOP!
With your help, we won't have to.
Introducing THE APPLE ARTS SUMMER FUND.
We are determined to raise the $12,000 we need to extend our program through the summer. ** AND WE RAISED OUR GOAL!!! Thanks for your support everyone!!!
