Craft with me is an effort to bring fun and creativity to children. The kids receive art supplies in the mail that are then used for zoom art classes. Crafting is a great way for kids to use their imagination while providing a therapeutic component.  

Hi. My name is Caroline. I am 14 years old and entering ninth grade.  I am very passionate about helping people and watching the children create my art projects brings me such joy. Craft with Me is so rewarding because it has created a platform that allows me to impact children in a positive way. 

CRAFT WITH ME STEPS

  1. Craft with Me designs a monthly project calendar.

  2. Community members are encouraged to donate supplies from amazon wish list or money for program costs!

  3. Volunteers are selected and trained as Zoom Leaders.

  4. Children are referred to the program and matched with a Zoom leader.

  5. New children participants are sent a Craft with Me box filled with staple art supplies.

  6. Children and Zoom leaders are sent craft project bags regularly.

  7. Zoom crafting sessions take place on a weekly or bi-weekly basis!
