#Giving Tuesday Is November 30th!

What Does That Mean? 
On Tuesday, November 30th, Hawthorne is once again joining the #GivingTuesday global giving back movement. It's a simple idea: one day focused on encouraging people around the world to come together to thank, help, give, show kindness, and share what they have with their communities. #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season when people focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. This year's Hawthorne focus will be on our HSA Arts Partnership Program.

Our Arts Partnership program has a 20+year history with HSA. The PTA provides significant funding for a resident artist to collaborate with and create a cohesive educational unit for grades K-8, incorporating artistic expression throughout the entire process. Each grade will host a truly special evening event specific to their project called a Showcase, where the children lead you through this amazing adventure. Example themes have included "Solids, Liquids and Gases," "Chicago Neighborhoods," "Greek Mythology", "Canterbury Tales" and unique 8th grade plays. Stay tuned for more details on this year's themes and dates!
