When you join Come Paint With Us for a paint and sip class, you’re not just embracing your creative side. You’re also supporting a local non-profit organization!
All proceeds from our classes benefit the Lifetime Adoption Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 charity with a focus on children and human services. Keep reading to learn more about how Come Paint With Us helps this local non-profit do more good!
The Lifetime Adoption Foundation was established by Mardie Caldwell, an adoptive mother. The organization provides help and funding for families living in sub-poverty situations, adoption grants for couples opening their homes to hard-to-place children, and scholarships for birth mothers. According to the Lifetime Adoption Foundation website, the organization is “dedicated to the development of healthy and fulfilling futures. All children need a loving family who can provide guidance, opportunity, and the promise of a full life.”
Their mission is to support birth mothers and their families with counseling, emergency aid, scholarships, housing assistance, clothing, and other items during and after their child’s adoption. In addition, The Foundation supports prospective adoptive parents with resources and grants to assist them in building their family through safe open adoptions. Birth mothers deserve the opportunity for a positive future after adoption in the same way they have ensured a healthy future for their child. Here’s what one of their scholarship recipients had to say:
“Thank you for the generous scholarship! I feel honored to be chosen as a recipient. Getting my degree has been a lifelong dream, and it is finally happening. Thank you so much for your confidence in me and for your support. I am committed to getting my degree in Human Resources Management, and my goal is to work for the Veteran’s Administration. Thank you kindly!”
Come Paint With Us aims to be a socially responsible company and seeks to transform lives through purposeful giving. We invite you to kick back and have some fun with your friends while giving back!
Our paint and sip classes mix a professionally-taught painting class with a high-energy atmosphere and a few drinks. The Come Paint With Us studio is inside The Foothills Event Center, which is centrally located just five minutes away from downtown Grass Valley.
We look forward to the day when we can gather again so that you can Come Paint With Us!
