Activate Good is excited to partner with Art Intimacy, a nonprofit arts learning organization that provides mental and educational tools to prepare youth for future success, to get arts, crafts, and school supplies into the hands of 100 local kids this summer!

About The Supply Drive

Many students have been heavily impacted by the closure of schools due to COVID-19, and the result is the widening of an already wide achievement gap between low-income youth and their peers. To keep at-risk students engaged and encouraged during the summer months, we are holding an arts, crafts, and school supplies drive to create SmART Summer Kits. Kits will be distributed to low-income youth and the organizations that serve them between June 29 and July 3.
