St. Francis Medical Center’s C.A.R.E.S. Program (Children Are Really Extra Special), Trenton, will host its third annual art exhibit Jan. 12. CARES offers support to children ages three to 14 with severe emotional, behavioral or psychiatric needs. More than 35 children will have their individual pieces of art displayed at the exhibit.
The free event will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. in the CARES office, second floor, St. Francis Medical Center, 601 Hamilton Ave., Trenton.
“Working on a piece of art allows a child to communicate feelings and express his or her individual identity,” said Michele Czechowski, director of the CARES program in St. Francis Medical Center. “To have our students’ art displayed at the exhibit gives them a sense of pride. We look forward to celebrating the talent and strength of our youth.”
Since 2003, the CARES program at St. Francis has provided compassionate, high-quality care to children who do not require inpatient service but cannot be managed by community resources alone. The program is open weekdays, year-round at St. Francis Medical Center.
Light refreshments will be provided at the exhibit. Free valet parking is available. Registration is preferred but walk-ins are welcome. To register or for more information, call Czechowski at 609-599-6430.[[In-content Ad]]
