Badin High School’s Project is “Outside The Box.” Badin students will create and distribute age appropriate art supply boxes for youth in the community. “Outside the Box” is meant to reach children with a variety of backgrounds who may not have the means to purchase, access or opportunity to have their very own art supplies. Upon opening the box of safe, non-toxic art supplies, children will be presented with various media and tools to become immediately engaged and invited to think outside the box.
Dougie and Ray’s was started by a Fairfield High School graduate who wanted to give back to the school and its students. The proceeds of the grant will help assist in helping provide Christmas for approximately 100 students of Fairfield Schools. It will also help fill the nurse’s closet, providing shoes, underwear and clothes for those children that may be in need.
