The Uniting US team and partnership network stands together to support access to the healing arts such as (but not limited to) online facilitated classes, peer mentoring, and supply sharing and donations.
Generous donations of materials, equipment, and funding provide opportunities for Uniting US artists to create artwork and gifts of appreciation. April Goodwin-Gill received a new sewing machine that enables her artwork and make it possible for her to volunteer with the Uniting US Operation Mask Force team. Our team has donated more than 100,000 (and counting) masks to communities nationwide.
Uniting US started through the display of service members art and stories and we've consistently grown thanks to helping hands within US! Join our team and help empower individuals, families, and communities find wellness through art.
