President Anne Hollenbeck and Secretary-Treasurer Shirley Forpe accept a very generous check to provide art experiences for even more hospitalized adolescents from Altar'd State, a women's apparel boutique at the Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, Illinois. This local mall outlet pledged a portion of their Monday sales for three months this spring.

A fast-fashion leader, Altar'd State offers dresses, tops, skirts, shorts, pants, and swimwear including necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings, belts, hats, sunglasses, frames, candles, and fragrance serving customers on-line and at many stores throughout the United States. Visit their website at www.altardstate.com

How YOU can help us
BRING MORE BACKPACKS and ART EXPERIENCES
to the 8 hospitals we currently serve

The need has never been greater for Art Helps Heal's mission to provide the long-term adolescent patients at the seven children's hospitals we currently serve. 

 

In the future we hope to expand our service to other children's hospital facilities. However, none of this would be possible without the generosity of our contributors.
