Bring Arts Education to Life in Portland Public Schools. Join CAN and the Dreaming Zebra Foundation in delivering art supplies to Bridger Elementary.

Next Monday, December 13th at 11:30am, CAN volunteers & staff will be joining The Dreaming Zebra Foundation at Bridger Elementary to distribute art supplies for hundreds of Portland’s young artists and creative learners.

The Dreaming Zebra Foundation is a 501(c)3 that has joined forces with Portland Public Schools in an innovative partnership to provide new and gently used art supplies free of charge to Bridger, Humboldt, Kelly, King, Ockley Green, Peninsula, and Whitman schools before the end of the year.

“Our goal,” says Dreaming Zebra Founder Dawne Camera, “is to get materials into the hands of those with the greatest need for them, and we’re honored to play a role in helping students at seven of Portland’s schools to continue exploring their creativity through art.”

The Dreaming Zebra Foundation relies entirely upon volunteers to locate and distribute supplies – and CAN is more than happy to help. If you would like to join us next Monday or help the Dreaming Zebra Foundation distribute supplies to the other six schools on their list, e-mail us today.
