Share Art Heal's has a 4th of July tradition - Art for Soldiers! Last year on the 4th of July we sent 200 Art Experience Kits to the Soldiers. Throughout the year we ship art supplies and our Art Experience Kits to the Resiliency Art Room for active-duty Soldiers in the Apache art Center at Ft. Hood. It is a quiet room stocked with art supplies where Soldiers can create art. They like the size of our small kits. Everything for a complete art project is in a flat package the size of a greeting card. They especially like our Greeting Card Art Experience Kits. "So much fun is a small package" is how they described it in a thank you note last year. This year the Austin Police Department Summer Youth Leadership Program Students personally delivered 200 Share Art Heal Art Experience Kits to Soldiers in a ceremony at Ft. Hood. Every art kit was assembled and personalized by the students at APD's Summer Youth Leadership Program.
Thank you Officer Oakmon and students from APD's Summer Youth Leadership Program for making the Art Experience Kits and for personally delivering them to the Soldiers on your trip to Ft. Hood.
Thank you to all active U.S. Military and Veterans for your service. We are grateful.
