Kingwood residents Jennifer Carney and Shelancia Daniel are collecting Christmas craft supplies to offer a FREE ornament decorating workshop for families affected by Hurricane Harvey. This FREE workshop will be held on Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 10AM – 2PM at the Creativity Shell Studio in Kingwood.
Carney, who is the founder of Carney’s tutoring and Facebook group #kingwoodstrong, was receiving a lot of requests for Christmas ornaments from residents who lost their treasured possessions during the flood. She reached out to Daniel, who is the founder of Kingwood Nonprofit Organization, the Creativity Shell, to find a creative way to help the families.
Since the Creativity Shell will be hosting their annual Mini Maker’s Market on December 2, where kids from all over Houston will be selling their own handmade goods, Carney and Daniel thought it would be a great time to get families into the creative Christmas spirit by giving them the opportunity to make/decorate their own Christmas ornaments as well.
Santa and the Chic-Fil-A Cows will be available for “take your own” Christmas photos.Kingwood High School students from the MOASIC project as well as other K-12 makers will also be at the event selling their own handmade items to raise money for their schools and various other causes.
If you would like to donate craft supplies or cash to help fund this project, please drop off donations at Carney’s Tutoring (2606 Bens Branch Drive), the Creativity Shell (1570 Kingwood Drive) or online using the secure form below. Donations are tax-deductible.
If you were not directly affected by Hurricane Harvey, please come out this family friendly event and help decorate ornaments for residents who cannot make it!
