“Our Generous Community through the Eyes of Children”
Art in December at the Napa County Library
It was Shelly Hanan of ParentsCAN who brought the concept of a children’s art show to CanDo’s Give!Guide project. She wanted nonprofits to engage more children in the giving experience. “The Give!Guide provides a wonderful way for local nonprofits to come together and share our message with each other and with our community. I wanted to create an opportunity for children to share their stories and feelings as well,” said Hanan.
Collaborating with seven other nonprofit participants in this year’s Give!Guide, Shelly solicited art created by children served by those organizations: NEWS, Loving Animals Providing Smiles, Community Resources for Children, Napa Valley Community Housing, Upper Valley Girl Scouts, Teacher Resource Center of the North Bay, Napa Farmers Market and ParentsCAN.
The exhibit is open to the public in the children’s room at the Napa County Library throughout December.
