Solstice Helps Young At Art Paint a Brighter Future for Broward Children

January 31, 2011

Solstice Benefits is proud to partner with Young At Children’s Museum, a local non-profit organization located just 1 mile from their office. During their recent Strategic Planning Session, the Solstice Leadership Team worked to donate Lego sets as well as art supplies such as paint, brushes, canvases and aprons to Young At Art.

Young At Art offers programs to benefit the homeless, underprivileged, needy, at-risk, physically and mentally challenged children of the community. Since its inception over 20 years ago, their outreach programs have reached into the heart of Broward County schools, community centers and inner city neighborhoods to increase academic literacy within the community. Currently, they are expanding into a new cultural arts complex to include a museum, arts center, outdoor public park and a 20,000 square foot public library.

"Being able to support a local organization - one that is right in our backyard - is extremely satisfying for our company. Young At Art’s commitment to our community resonated with the values of our organization. Several of our employee’s children have attended Young At Art programs and it is an honor to give back to such a deserving group," said Carlos Ferrera, Chief Operating Officer at Solstice Benefits.

Solstice is looking forward to helping Young At Art again in the future - with a goal to create a Solstice Center to promote dental care and wellness in their future cultural arts complex. The team at Young At Art has been extremely welcoming and grateful for the donation and assistance.

"We are so appreciative of the support we received from Solstice. On behalf of the children we will serve, we thank them for thinking of us and their contribution," said Mindy Shrago, Executive Director at Young At Art Children’s Museum.
