Theatre Arts For Kids Partners With Project 4:7 for KIDS CARE: OPERATION NICU
Theatre Arts For Kids (TAFK.org), a local non-profit children’s theatre company here in Lincoln, is dedicated to philanthropy. Each holiday season, the organization gives back to the community in a unique way.
Last year, TAFK partnered with Basement Opera to produce their first opera. The proceeds went directly to the Food Bank and a “Coats for Kids” effort. This year’s endeavor was also close to their hearts. In collaboration with Project 4:7 (Project4-7.com), a faith-based non-profit organization dedicated to working with those who battle depression, anxiety, and addiction, Theatre Arts For Kids announced KIDS CARE: OPERATION NICU in December 2016.
Project 4:7 aligns with Theatre Arts For Kids’ (TAFK.org) mission to make a difference in the community and instill these values in our children, and both Leah Kolar of TAFK and Amy Olson of Project 4:7 are also former NICU moms. TAFK and Project 4:7 worked with the NICU staff at Bryan Hospital to identify three ways to help make a difference for the parents in the NICU this past holiday season and beyond. Through their collaborative initiative, gift cards and ornaments were given to families with babies in NICU during the holidays. Additionally, four Mamaroo seats and five voice recorders were donated to the NICU floor at Bryan in the hopes it would make each child’s stay a little brighter.
