This is the first time Artportunity Knocks has joined forces with Town Center at Cobb Mall and they appreciate the timely exposure. According to Executive Director Chris Woods, “it is an honor to be able to give the resources students need to be successful in school. To date, Artportunity Knocks has given out backpacks and school supplies to over 10,000 students.”
Since its inception in 2007, ARTportunity Knocks has been a powerful and positive standard in underserved communities across the Peach State. They will distribute bookbags with supplies, as well as art supplies and other giveaways (while supplies last). They will also have art therapy, painting, and game tables/activities. Special partners include several local mental health partners, law enforcement, and Kennesaw State University.
Look for special appearances by superheroes: Spider Dude, Captain USA, and Wonder Girl! Kids will especially enjoy the goody bags, door prizes, selfie wall, balloon artists, games, and more. There will be performances and entertainment by DJ B’Rockin Parties, the Samba International Drummers, Rockwell Dance Team, Cobb Autistic Dancers, J and J Cheer Squad, J’Eon, K and K Dance Team, and Mecca.
