The folks at the West Woodland neighborhood blog emailed through to let us know about a recent crime that, quite literally, stole the dreams of a local art teacher
Local resident Elaine Monroe had recently received approval to start a mobile art center program for children this Summer when her art supply van was stolen.
The van was full of supplies, mostly donated by locals, when it was taken and her insurance company will not cover the cost to replace the materials.
Check out the message from Elaine posted on her Go Fund Me Fundraising campaign page below:
For those of you who know me, you know that bringing the joy of Art to children in King County area has been a dream of mine for the past decade.
The vehicle to be used to transport all of the art supplies and the art supplies themselves were stolen; and we lost everything! Most of the supplies were donated through the generosity of others, therefore, the insurance company has declined to resupply what was lost.
Not only do I have to figure out how to restock all of our supplies, I had to get a new van as well to transport them. The cost of this has been overwhelming to my family and I.
Any little bit that you can donate will be used to help bring joy and Arts to children in our neighborhood to get the mobile Art cart up & running!
Thank you so much in advance for your consideration and support through this very trying time for my family.
Elaine is asking for support from the local community to get back on track to open her mobile art program in time for Summer.
Locals can donate funds through the Go Fund Me campaign or donate art supplies directly to Elaine (email her directly through the Go Fund Me Page).
