What We Need Your Support ChalkFest
ChalkFest is a sidewalk chalk art festival featuring the children of The Nurturing Place, York Street Project's child development center for homeless and homeless-transitioned children (aged 4 months - 6 years). The 5' x 7' mural spaces, which are outlined across the Plaza floor, are sponsored by individuals, businesses, corporations, religious groups, and civic organizations. Approximately 75 children unleash their creative talents with the help of local artists and volunteers from area businesses.
Music and games are provided for all to have fun. Our team of food volunteers run the refreshment carts and give away hot dogs, ice cold beverages, and Italian Ices.
The more than 500 lunchtime patrons are encouraged to learn more about The Project and the many ways they can help our families directly or through the workplace.
Admission for the general public is free, but donations are gratefully appreciated. Limited Edition T-Shirts also are available for purchase. All proceeds directly support York Street Project's programs to help women and children break the cycle of poverty.
