Alyssa Starter Art Kits (SAKs) were delivered to RMH family room in Edward Hospital on Tuesday, November 27, 2018 by Yoli Alvin-AAFH President and 2 volunteers (Linda Fox & Carol Cole) who helped prepare the Alyssa SAKs during an Exelon Volunteer event.

We met Brittany Rhyne, RMH Manager, who works with the young patients admitted at Edward Hospital. Brittany mentioned the RMH family room lacks art materials for these young patients and that the Alyssa SAKs will serve to fill this void. Five different varieties of Alyssa SAKs were delivered and included writing journal sets, adult coloring books, drawing kits, watercolor and acrylic kits.

AAFH provides Alyssa SAKs to medical institutions and Ronald McDonald Houses to give teens and young adults between the ages of 10 and 21 an opportunity to create their own work of art, write their thoughts in their journal, relax and have some fun coloring.

We thank the Child Life Staff of the RMH family room at Edward Hospital for giving us the opportunity to share Alyssa’s love of art and music, and promoting our programs offered by Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope!
