WFAE President Christine Wente and Board Treasurer Amy Hoopes visited Jackson School on Tuesday, March 28 bearing a super-sized stash of art supplies for the students. Employees of the Clorox Corporation had donated some art supplies to WFAE during a corporate event that Clorox hosted at Wente Vineyards last year. WFAE contributed additional supplies, and worked with the Livermore Valley Education Foundation (LVEF) to select Jackson School as the recipient.
“We are delighted to support arts education in Livermore schools, and we really appreciate the donations from Clorox employees,” noted Christine Wente. “With school art programs hit hard by budget cuts, WFAE is committed to bringing opportunities to create art to as many children in the Tri-Valley as possible.”
