Kids use art to show feelings on homelessness
See how local second-graders view homelessness in a collection of art that will be on display from Aug. 5-19 at Chococoa Baking Co.
Pamela Jamison, a teacher at Bresnahan Elementary School, asked her students, “What do the words ‘roof over head’ mean to you?” She also introduced them to ROOF Over Head, a local nonprofit that provides supportive housing to families in need in Amesbury, Newburyport and Salisbury.
An opening reception will be held Monday from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. at Chococoa, located in The Tannery Marketplace, Mill 1, 50 Water St., Newburyport.
