IMG_0360Club Joe’s & Joe’s Summer Arts Camp Wish List

Remember the thrill of a new box of crayons? The rainbows of perfect points full of potential? How about the joy of a new marker, fresh from the box, it’s tip still firm and pristine ready to create the perfect line? How about now? Still feel waves of pleasure walking down the aisle of pens at Staples? Then you understand why we need your help.

IMG_0364Many of the children that come to Joe’s Movement Emporium’s Maryland State Certifed Summer Arts Camps and Club Joe’s After School programs don’t get to experience the joy of brand new school supplies. After a year of Club Joe’s and Summer Camp, our paints pots are running dry, our crayons are mere stubs and our colored pencils broken pieces of wood. Joe’s staff supplement supplies for our arts education program with purchases out of their own pocket from Back to School sales, but it’s not enough.

This year we’re proud to say Club Joe’s is at it’s full capacity. We’ve done everything we can to make sure every child who wants to come to Joe’s after school can. And now we’ve more students than ever who need supplies to do homework after school and create art projects with Teaching Artist Clara Majors. Can you help us?

We have 64 students enrolled in Club Joe’s. If 64 people donated $20 or $20 worth of supplies we’d have plenty to keep our kids going throughout the year. Can you be one of those 64?
