Art Supplies Needed for Children's Hopsital
Posted on Jan 6th, 2012

My name is Erik Wiegel, a senior in the Seneca Valley School District.  As part of my senior project, I am fundraising for Art Supplies to be donated for the children suffering from cancer and leukemia at Children’s Hospital of UPMC. 

My passion is to become a successful video game designer and artist in the future.   Therefore, I want to encourage children to use their creativity through art.  Art is a calming and inspirational way for children to express themselves and how they are feeling.   
The chance for infection from shared materials is not permitted on these floors.  Hence the children in the oncology units at Children’s Hospital go through many art supplies.   They can not share supplies due to their illnesses.  I am asking for your help and participation in collecting donated art supplies for these children to have for their own while in the Hospital having treatment from their diseases. 

All kinds of Art supplies are needed:  (all colors / different textures of supplies are welcome)

All Crayons   All Erasers  Shading Pencils   Drawing Paper

Crayola Markers    Lap Pad  Colored Pencils   Drawing Pads

Different Stickers     Glue    Charcoal Pencils  Coloring Books

Stampers / Stamp pads  Foam Shapes / kits Any Art Pencils  Construction Paper

Paint by numbers   Watercolor Paints Paint Brushes  Canvas Boards - paint
***any  Crayola - like materials
Drop off your donations at the Cranberry Township Municipal Building, on Rochester Road.   The Bin for the Art Supplies (Erik Wiegel sign) is located near the Administration Office.   The bin will be available all through the month of January for donations at the Municipal Building.  OR please call (724—776—0948) for a pick-up. 
I appreciate your assistance with this important endeavor for helping children through a difficult time in their lives receive something to make their time more agreeable. 

Thank You!!!!
