Culver City Artist Laureate Alexey Steele added a special touch to the Emergency Relief Food Drive Care Packages going out in the week of April 14, 2020. Alexey attached artwork by a child artist and a special note for care package recipients, “Even in home isolation we are still a community of great neighbors. Here is a print from a special artwork that was made safe-at-home by a child to keep your spirit up.”
This week’s artwork was created by Jeremy from local Cub Scout Pack 79.
The Culver City Emergency Relief Food Drive was launched recently by community members and City staff to help Culver City residents, over 65 or with underlying medical conditions, who don’t have the means to purchase and pickup groceries. Since its launch, so many community members and companies have donated food. Fire Department personnel gather the donations, PRCS staff clean, allocate and pack the food items, CERT volunteers distribute the care packages and now, there is an added touch by our Artist Laureate.
