Charming Charlie, the accessories store, and SPARK, the school park program, have teamed up to help improve the Houston community.
Charming Charlie has donated about three truckloads of recycled jewelry for area students to create original artwork.
According to Kathleen Owmby, SPARK Program Director,
the jewelry has been distributed to fifteen schools.
She was at city hall Wednesday showing the student’s colorful and original art to Mayor Annise Parker, council member Ed Gonzalez and other council members.
Money raised from the sale of the art
will enable SPARK to work with schools to create playgrounds for the community to enjoy.
You can purchase some of the artwork created by students by visiting the booth in Tranquility Park at the Bayou City Art Festival or at http://www.coobomedia.com/sparkpark
Contributions are tax deductible and will be used toward the construction of future SPARK Parks.
