-Donate to the Art Pantry Today!-
Unfortunately, due to the current economic climate many Barry County schools have had to make the tough decision to cut their art department budgets. The cuts have been severe and some departments are left with a budget that is as little as two dollars per student for the entire school year. It is with this reality in mind that the Thornapple Arts Council is partnering with Barry County Art Departments to create a year-round collection of art supplies and materials called the Art Pantry.
This Art Pantry program will accept donations of art supplies and monetary donations all year long.
Cash donations are the most helpful as they allow us to order specific and specialty items a teacher may need. It also allows us to save on storage space.
