La Posada del Arte

Project

Fundación Arte del Mundo / La BIB provides a children’s library and after school program based on the arts free to the community for children from ages 6 through 12 years old.

The books and the program are in Spanish. The foundation also has developed and manages a theater on their premises, which presents theatrical productions both professional and community based.

The theater is also used as a movie theater and the foundation screens family-oriented movies there Friday evenings for the community.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 30, 2016

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
