Tuesday, December 3 was Giving Tuesday across Canada and a Gift of Art was happy to both give and receive on this important day.

On the giving front, with funds for the materials raised through a bake sale, A Gift of Art assembled, from kits designed and provided by Tina Crocker of Newcastle’s RONA , 300 cards that were donated to Ontario Shores Foundation for Mental Health, Newcastle’s Fosterbrook Seniors Residence and Clarington East Food Bank.

We are also very grateful for all the donations we received on Giving Tuesday. Those funds will go to our programs for kids and adults.
