The abandoned grocery carts that we so often see scattered in our neighborhood are being adopted for a unique holiday event to collect food for the North Helpline Food Bank —and turned into works of art.
Carts will be decorated by neighborhood organizations such as nonprofits, block watch groups, businesses and other neighborhood groups. The decorated Art Carts will serve as food donation stations while displayed at local businesses and at the annual Lake City Chamber Holiday in the Park event on December 7th at the Lake City Mini Park (see flyer below).
The decorated Art Carts will be judged at the December 7th event with two awards given out — the People's Choice Award and the Judges Choice Award.
Carts will be rounded up and distributed by volunteers to participating organizations on November 12th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lake City Mini Park.
The Olympic Hills neighborhood has plenty of stray carts on our roadside pathways begging to be turned into art, so maybe a few entries from our community organization would be appropriate —and fun.
