Busy Bees Pottery & Arts Studio and Moe’s Southwest Grill, both locally owned companies in Mentor, are teaming up to provide food for those on the frontlines assisting with novel coronavirus pandemic.
Focusing on what they each do best, they have come up with a "Paint for a Cause” and Donate Fun Food fundraiser, according to a news release.
Beth Brinton, owner of Busy Bees, has designed a canvas paint project. Named “Healing Earth,” the canvas design is an image of the world in its strong blue and green colors protected by a white pristine mask donning a red bold heart, the release stated. The design speaks to love and compassion, protecting and healing.
For each "Healing Earth" canvas kit purchased at a cost of $30, Busy Bees will donate the proceeds to purchase food from Moe's Southwest Grill who will sweeten the order with dessert and will make the delivery. There will be a few recipients, but the initial delivery will be to the Lake County Free Clinic.
“With the Free Clinic serving uninsured and underinsured residents without charge, their case load during these trying times has increased to even include telehealth visits," Moe’s owner Ryan O’Hare said in the release. "What better way to show our appreciation than to treat them to a meal?”
Each kit will come with all of the materials needed, including an outline of the picture, canvas, brushes, paints and instructions to create at home, the release stated. As a "thank you" for the fundraiser participation, a $5 Moe Bucks certificate will be included with each canvas kit.
Purchases can be made at https://mentor.busybeesart.com/product/healing-earth/ through June 10 and orders can be picked up at Busy Bees curbside or in the studio located in the Great Lakes Mall.
"Our hearts and minds have been with those on the frontlines and will continue to be,” Brinton said. "We are pleased to partner with Ryan and Moe’s to help our local frontline heroes while offering our ever-supportive community the opportunity to explore creativity through painting.”
