Call for Papers (and pencils and crayons and other creative tools)

Think Creative is answering President-elect Obama's call to participate in a National Day of Service and we could use YOUR help.

On Monday, January 19, (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day) we will host a supply drive to benefit Page 15, a non-profit organization committed to providing supplemental reading and writing education for all students living and attending public school in Orlando. They offer, among other things, free after-school tutoring and creative writing workshops dedicated to enhancing communication skills, encouraging personal creativity and inspiring a lifelong passion for the language arts. Such passion burns bright  in our offices, and we are happy to support efforts to ignite it in the next generation. If you feel the same way, you can help by donating items for students to use in their creative projects, including but not limited to:

  • poster boards
  • letter stencils
  • large construction paper
  • printing paper
  • pens
  • pencils
  • calculators

We will also accept monetary contributions, which will go towards the purchase of magazine subscriptions for the Page 15 reading library. 

Please bring donations directly to our office at 1001 Virginia Drive, Orlando, FL through January 19, or if it's easier, contact us to arrange a pickup. Thanks!
