Rotary Club of Cincinnati to Assemble Art Supplies for Children’s Hospital in Conjunction with Emma’s Art Cart

After being diagnosed with a brain tumor at a young age, Emma Stumpf went through 70 weeks of chemotherapy, 6 weeks of radiation, and over a dozen brain surgeries. During that time, she turned to art to help express her feelings. She used yellow paint when she was happy, blue paint when she was sad, and clay when she felt angry. That experience inspired Emma to start this project when she was 7 years old. Today we can help Emma achieve her dream of giving art supplies to every kid who’s going through a hard time and needs to express themselves. The Women in Rotary Committee is organizing this hands on service project for all members of the club that is to take place at the Hilton Netherland Plaza (Salon M) prior to the Rotary luncheon meeting on Thursday, October 5, 2017. The plan is to assemble 180 kits, 1 cart, and include handwritten notes of encouragement in the assembled kits. The kits and cart will then be delivered to Children’s Hospital by the Women in Rotary Committee.  If you would like to donate funds to support this project, contact the Rotary office at 513.421.1080 or office@cincinnatirotary.org. To volunteer for this project or with any questions, please contact Project Captain, Sherrie Mathis, at 513.378.2888 or smathis@cinci.rr.com. LOCATION: Salon M, 4th Floor.
