-Statistics provided by the Boys and Girls Club of America
|Now that you know, what can WE do?
Wheatpaste (along with parent company GreenBox Art + Culture) wants to improve these statistics by helping create great futures for young people. By dedicating time, resources, and over $50,000 in the past year to the Boys & Girls Club of America, we’ve made a commitment to improve children’s lives. In the San Diego area alone, Wheatpaste has completed several work projects, provided art for contest winners, and sponsored local events. We look forward to our ongoing support by sponsoring a Mentorship Day to club members who are interested in learning more about the process of making fine art. We invite you to join us in supporting the Boys & Girls Club of America by contacting a club near you to discover ways you can help.
