During the holiday season, the Fine Arts Guild partnered with Casa Grande’s Art Mobile to bring some cheer to some 200 seniors in the local communities of Eloy and Casa Grande. The Fine Arts Guild collected shoeboxes, toiletries, and art supplies to distribute to seniors who are less fortunate.

Thank you to the seven elves (volunteers) who helped us stuff and wrap more than 50 boxes with art supplies and gifts of cheer. Volunteers included Nils Johnson, Melissa Stepp, Susan Halley, Deb Ellis, Sue Kearney, and Jeana and Stephanie Capel-Jones.

Another great big thank you goes to the Fine Arts Guild members and Robson Ranch residents who dropped off bags of goodies filled with art supplies, toiletries, warm socks, candy, and canned goods. These gifts of kindness will be greatly appreciated by seniors at local nursing homes.
