Leading up to the first week of school, teachers spend countless hours preparing and decorating their classrooms. They use personal funds for supplies and resources for their students.

When the first week of school arrived, many Louisiana classrooms were underwater.

We’ve heard from our colleagues at the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge that six schools in the district are completely flooded out, several others have damage, and a large portion of faculty and students have been displaced by flooding.

KID smART is collecting art supplies for ACBR to distribute to schools impacted by last week’s flood. With your donation, we can help students and teachers rebuild, reimagine, and recreate.

Art Supplies Requested:
-Markers
-Crayons
-Colored Pencils
-Construction Paper
-Scissors
-Glue
-Theatre Props/Costumes
-Musical Instruments

Art supply donations can be dropped off at the KID smART office:
1024 Elysian Fields Ave. | New Orleans, LA 70117 | Open Monday-Friday, 10am-5pm

One of our teaching artists has kindly volunteered to transport supplies to Baton Rouge.

A message from the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge:
We would greatly appreciate a donation of art supplies for the affected schools. If you are making a monetary donation to specific schools, it would be best to go through the Foundation for East Baton Rouge Parish School System. The contact there is Keila Stovall and the number is 225-226-7936. If you would like to make a donation to the Arts Council’s Education programming, that can be submitted by clicking here
