Charles County, MD —  You can help give kids the gift of art as they head back to school. 

The Charles County Arts Alliances is packing 500 Art Boxes to give to K – 3rd grade students as they head back to school.

The boxes are packed with all the supplies kids need to get their creative juices flowing like glue sticks, crayons, colored pencils, scissors, and erasers.

The boxes will be donated to the Children’s Aid Society and distributed to needy kids. Funding for this year’s art boxes has been made possible through the Charles County Charitable Trust and the Walmart Foundation.

You can offer a hand with assembling the boxes on Thursday, August 15, beginning at 10:00 am, at the United Way House, 10250 La Plata Road (Rt. 488), La Plata, MD.
