BELFAST — Local artists will be turning chairs into art for a silent auction to support the Belfast Public Health Nursing Association.
The Association provides health care and other critical support services to the most disadvantaged and vulnerable members of the community. They contribute to helping Waldo County General Hospital in Belfast prepare for emergencies including natural or man-made disasters, through education, providing treatment, holding community immunization clinics, and monitoring outbreaks.
The Association also works with schools to assist with resource management, food insecurity or oral health care, and they link people to needed health services. One example of their work was last week when they gave out 140 meals for 3 days to Waldo county children, according to a news release.
One hundred percent of the profits from the silent auction will go to the nursing association.
The artists’ chair creations will be on display at Local Color Gallery from Thursday, July 30 - Saturday, August 15. The final bidding day August 15 will include an outdoor display of the chairs as well as safely spaced clipboards for making bids. Stop by the gallery to view the chairs and consider your bids.
Local Color Gallery is located at 135 High Street in Belfast, open Thursday-Sunday, 12-4.
