The Bloomington-Normal Jaycees are organizing 200 bags filled with art supplies and activities
to donate to the Boys & Girls Club this May, 2020.
The Boys & Club provides a very important resource for children from low income families in our
community through providing a safe place for these kiddos to receive food, structure, and
learning opportunities. Because of the shelter-in-place order their members have been cut off
from the Boys & Girls Club’s services. When the Bloomington-Normal Jaycees asked “How can
we help?” the Bloomington Boys & Girls Club responded that we could organize 200 bags full of
art activities for their members to complete at home.
Each bag will include:
- Watercolor Paints with a Brush
- 5 Sheet of White Watercolor Paper
- 24 Pack of Crayons
- 30 Sheets of Construction Paper in a Variety of Colors
- Glue Stick
- Masking Tape
- Reusable Drawstring Backpack
- Instructions for More Than 10 Engaging Activities to Keep Kids Active at Home Including: How
to Make a Pop Up Greeting Card, 3D Paper Cactus, Letter Art, Watercolor & Crayon “Stained
Glass,” and Neighborhood Bingo.
In order to complete important projects such at the Art Activity Bags for the Boys & Girls Club
we need help from our community. Please support our efforts by sponsoring a bag to be
donated to the Bloomington Boys & Girls Club.
We’ve stopped selling art bags. Thank you to everyone who contributed!
