PAINTING THE TOWN YELLOW
The P.U.G.G. Crew joined with Uncle Riley in painting the YMCA Yellow for the Celebration of International Day of Happiness, the kick off of the Paint the Town Yellow campaign. This was just the beginning. P.U.G.G. will be working to shed a light on depression by reaching out to local business to spread art and information in support of mental health awareness. Keep an eye out on Broadway as the town gets painted yellow.
At the Teen Open Studios, we are joining in, making silk screen posters to be placed around town, doing our part to spread the light.
For more information on the campaign, or to get involved visit the www.facebook.com/kingstonisintoyellow/, or contact us at email@example.com.
