We’ve all heard of Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday. But what about giving back to your community while you shop?
Young Audiences, with Hyatt’s All Things Creative, has built an exciting partnership for shoppers to give back while they shop through the holiday season. Patrons of Hyatt’s will have the opportunity to purchase materials to donate to Young Audiences. These materials will be used for arts in education programs provided by Young Audiences teaching artists to the youth of Western New York.
“Hyatt’s is extremely pleased to partner with Young Audiences of Western New York,” said Elizabeth Hyatt-Martin about the holiday gift program. “Their use of hands-on arts learning brings children new experiences and ways of thinking that are important for inspiring the next generation. We are proud to add our support to the hard work they do to provide the best educational and artistic opportunities for our youth.”
Sales started on Black Friday, November 28 and will run through January 15, 2015. Specific information about needed art
materials is displayed at both Hyatt’s locations: Main Street in Buffalo and Clarence. Materials available for donation will include paper, paint, brushes, clay, origami paper, and more.
Hyatt’s gift cards can also be donated.
For over 50 years, Young Audiences has been a critical source of arts learning for young people. Local professional artists, who are skilled and passionate teaching artists, provide workshops and residencies. Arts forms include dance, music, theater, visual, literary and digital arts. Many of the young people served by these programs have little or limited access to the arts, and quality materials help provide the hands-on experiences that best enhance their learning.
