Join In Arts & Crafts Fun for Seniors at ABCD on Wednesdays

Come join the fun! The local ABCD North End/West End Neighborhood Service Center (NE/WE NSC) runs a free arts and crafts class for seniors every other Wednesday at 10:00AM.  

You do not need to be artistic-the students and teacher have been making all sorts of creations, including Halloween masks and Thanksgiving decorations! They also welcome gift cards for Michael’s, Joanne’s, and The Dollar Tree, as well as in-kind donations of the following:

  • wool
  • yarn
  • fabric
  • lace and trim
  • other sewing notions
  • ribbon
  • needles
  • tape
  • glue
  • scissors
  • paper
  • paints
  • ceramic items to paint
  • colored paper
  • markers
  • colored pencils
  • Or your own suggestions!

Please contact Lizbeth Castrillon at 617-523-8125 or via email at lizbeth.castrillon@bostonabcd.org if you are interested in joining the class or making a donation.

Items do not need to be new, but the NE/WE NSC asks that they be in good condition.

The office is located at 1 Michelangelo Street in the North End, next door to the Copp’s Hill Cemetery.
