Read & Chat at Seven Acres:

Donny Workman Memorial Lunch Program: NCJW GHS provides lunch, friendship, and art scholarships to the students in the Healing Arts Program at the Art League who are HIV positive or living with other illnesses. Our volunteers celebrate special Jewish holiday lunches by telling the students about the holiday and bringing celebratory food. Volunteers also visit art exhibits with the students. If you would like to help support the program’s lunches, we always welcome home cooked food, leftovers, paper goods, and soft drinks. Learn more about the Art League’s Healing Art program at http://www.artleaguehouston.org/healingart/
