CHA Kids Craft Fair at Boys & Girls Club of Chicago

CHA Kids Craft Fair at Boys & Girls Club of Chicago

In efforts to give back to the Chicagoland community that has hosted the annual Summer Conference & Trade Show for over 30 years, the Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) is proud to host a Kids Craft Fair at the General Robert E. Wood Boys & Girls Club of Chicago (BGCC) Center on July 13, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

CHA staff and member volunteers as well as representatives from the BGCC will be on hand during the event to teach 200 children (age 4 to 14) new crafts skills. During this half-day program, children will create book marks, visors, door hangers, scrapbook art squares, and express their individual style and creativity through craft projects generously donated by members of the Association. 

 Interested in giving back? To volunteer for the July 13th event please contact Paige Sjoblom at psjoblom@craftandhobby.org or 201.835.1223 by July 6th.
