Power of the Purse

We are giving kids the space – so they can create their dreams!

 We are planning a $50,000 renovation to our arts and crafts room at St. Alban’s.  Planned improvements include:

  • Adjustable chairs and tables to accommodate preschoolers to young adults.
  • Built in shelving – safer and cleaner
  • Drying racks – to protect and store works of art
  • Stainless steel sink – for washing paint brushes and hands
  • Improved lighting, open ceiling.
  • Sewing machine and glue gun stations
  • Inspiration walls to allow creative collaboration
  • Supplies – easels, paint brushes, glue, glitter, paint trays, clay, feathers, markers, crayons, charcoal, pastels, etc….

All the programs and age groups at St. Alban’s use and benefit from our art room and creative arts programs on a regular basis. We know that art provides children with a way to express themselves without words. Art helps children learn to think for themselves, consider multiple points of view and explore possibilities.  Art stimulates and develops the right side of the brain and helps develop the visual aptitude students rely on to learn effectively.  Most importantly, art is fun – playing is learning!

 How can you help?

Tyrelle Crooks-Cooper Funeral Cost

Kassandra is an important member of the St. Alban’s family.   She has worked with St. Alban’s for many years and is a dedicated, valued and respected part of the St. Alban’s team. She is loved for her commitment to making the community a better place for children and families.

Kassandra’s 8 yr old son Tyrelle was admitted into Sick Children’s Hospital after falling ill with what was thought to be a regular flu but quickly turned into the unknown. After months of tests, research and prayers, he9 had sadly passed away from unknown causes on April 22, 2018.

Kassandra, Tristan and T.J. are brokenhearted at the loss of their beloved Tyrelle. Our hearts break for them and as a family we are going to do what we can to support her and we have set up a Go Fund Me Page to help with funeral and other costs that the family has incurred during this horrible time.

The link to the Go Fund ME page is below, any assistance you can give would be greatly appreciated or if you could share with family and friends.
