$800,000 in art supplies donated by law firm, charity

Early Childhood Resources, LLC, and Price Charities have helped secure more than $800,000 of educational supplies, materials and equipment for San Diego Unified School District arts program.
Paint brushes Materials were delivered to schools throughout the Spring from seven shipments of educational goods donated through the district's Visual and Performing Arts Department.

Donated items included scissors, art supplies, easels, chairs, tables, and racks. Seven truck loads of items contained 30 pallets of goods to be distributed throughout the District, focusing on elementary sites and arts programs.

"So far this generous donation has put additional resources in the hands of our teachers whose funding for their growing programs has been slashed in previous years," said Dr. Karen Childress-Evans, Director of Visual and Performing Arts Programs. "To many teachers these donated items could not have come at a better time. Thank you again to ECR and Price Charities for supporting San Diego Unified students."
