The Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope (AAFH) held an Art Night at the RMH near Central DuPage Hospital in Warrenville, IL on Monday, February 11, 2019. We provided red, pink and white acrylic paints, paint brushes and papier-mache heart shaped boxes of different sizes for the children and their family members to create a special Valentine themed art gift. The paint brushes were provided by Judy Goral-Artist from Lemont, IL.

We met Lauren White - House Manager, young patients and family members who were ready to participate in the Valentine themed art project to create fun gifts for their loved ones.

Whatever the age or talent level, all had lots of fun interacting with each other and expressing their individual styles of creativity. At each Art Night, we are fulfilling the mission of Alyssa’s Foundation and we are so happy to do just that in keeping with Alyssa’s passion for art. Art Nights also provide for the needs of the young patients in sharing their joy and love for life.

After this Art Night event, one young patient – Eaden submitted his Gift Request to the Alyssa Foundation and we are looking forward to honoring his request for art supplies prior to his departure from the RMH.
