Creativity & Learning Kit Supply Drive for Youth

Central Square is a Cultural District, home to longstanding arts institutions and mission-driven organizations that have supported Cambridge children as lifelong learners and creators for generations. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt traditional means of learning and exploring, three historic, Port-based community centers are working together to keep kids connected to their community and creativity.

In partnership with Community Art Center, Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House, and Tutoring Plus of Cambridge, the Central Square BID is raising money to purchase supplies for creativity and learning kits. These kits will be delivered and mailed to 150+ Central Square youth and families who do not have consistent access to the materials they need at home to participate fully in school assignments or engage in creative projects with their beloved out-of-school-time teachers.

Your donation will go toward the purchasing of art and learning supplies for each kit, including:

Pens, pencils, markers, paints
Scissors and glue
Lined, plain, and construction paper
Journals and notebooks
Family games for both indoor and outdoor use

As we look forward to summer and the possibility of continued online learning and at-home projects, the need for materials becomes even more acute. These materials will also enable self-expression and reflection, which are critical for our young people to process and heal.

Community Art Center, Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House, and Tutoring Plus have been supporting the Port community for a combined total of over 200 years. In fall 2020, they will launch the Port Arise Institute, an initiative that provides training, support and leadership development to families living in and around the Port neighborhood.
