East LA Boys & Girls Club Treated With Art Donations From Melissa & Doug [VIDEO]
Anna Araujo and the folks at the club see an average of 500 kids a day and they provide a wide range of fun things to do. The swim team has been practicing more and more, so the club is trying to raise money and put a heater into the outdoor pool in order for the kids to train in the evenings.
Because of that project, funds can’t go to other areas of activities like arts and crafts. Ryan teamed up with Melissa and Doug, a great toy company, to send gifts to the kids. They were surprised with a little of everything: easels, paints, games, a floor puzzle, and even a giraffe plushy that’s three feet tall! Anna and the kids were treated to fresh new art supplies to replace the paper plates and dried markers they’ve resorted to using for arts and crafts.
Now the swim team will enjoy their new pool heater and the budding artists at the Boys & Girls Club can also hone their craft!
