We threw on our international dress and donated supplies to Telem Center For The African Child, Inc. Telem Center is a not-for-profit dedicated to providing the African children of the NYC region an opportunity to celebrate their cultural backgrounds. They provide camps, leadership development, educational enrichment, community building and cultural events for the children.

Dear Ms. Cousineau,
Thank you for donation of trims and notions to Materials for the Arts. We were fortunate to recently benefit from this donation when we dropped by to look for supplies for art workshops at our camp this summer. We will be using the items we picked up to create Galimotos – toy cars, trucks and vehicles created from scrap pieces of metal, wire and other materials.
Telem Camp is a program of Telem Center for the African Child, a NYC based nonprofit organization that provides children of African descent an opportunity to explore and celebrate their heritage through cultural, educational and recreational programs throughout the year.
Given the traditional African practice of raising children by community participation, we thank you wholeheartedly for joining our global village and making a significant contribution towards the development of cultural and civic-minded youth ambassadors.
