The Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope (AAFH) held another Art Night at the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) in Winfield on Thursday, April 28, 2016 in the Community Room. 

Board Member, Kevin Cervantes, lead the Painting Inspiring Words activity with patients and parents staying at the house.  Kevin met Drew, a young patient, and his parents.  They all explored their artistic talents with paint on canvas and had fun!  There were many paint colors and brushes to choose from thanks to their generous contribution to the AAFH by two sisters – Doris Burdick and Jean Grupe.  

While the art painting was going on, Yoli, President of AAFH, held an art kit preparation with the Kohl’s Associates in Action (AiA) in a small corner of the Community Room.  There were 6 AiA volunteers, who participated in preparing 50 art kits for another upcoming Art Night. 

As always, the patients, parents and AiA volunteers who participated in the activities had a lot of fun at the Art Night!  This group of volunteers got to enjoy and experience the hope and joy the Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope brought to the Ronald McDonald House.

By the end of the night, Drew was excited about his gift request submitted by his Mom, Chelsey, to the AAFH website and we are honored to be able to fulfill his request. We will write more about Drew and his gift in a future blog soon!
