STIIIZY HELPS FACILITATE EMPOWERING EVENT FOR WATT’S COMMUNITY FOR WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH AND MORE
On March 25, 2021 STIIIZY teamed up with The Queen’s Program and the Watts Empowerment Center for Women’s History Month to give young ladies the opportunity express themselves and use graffiti art to create a mural alongside Southern California female artist Jules Muck Rock and to present them with art supplies of their own to take home.
The Queen’s Program through Red Eye Inc. is a creative arts youth development program that supports the exploration of self and career development for young girls living in the Imperial Courts Housing Projects in Watts, California.
Our team was thrilled to participate alongside Jules Muck Rock and the young girls, other youth participants in attendance to help support a creative atmosphere for a mural that was inspired by the youth participants: becoming a true representation of their community. After they were done, the girls and other participants were all gifted art supplies of their own to take home and continue on with their creative journey.
Also in partnership with the community center, STIIIZY was able to help give back a little more to the Watts community by supporting Red Eye Inc. in hosting their Watts Farmers’ Market events throughout the month of March. The team helped in distributing donated, healthy food boxes every other Friday throughout March to over 200 residents of the Courts housing projects. Alongside that, our team was able to provide a $4,000 monetary donation which will go to helping the center purchase a new large refrigerator unit to store perishable items from the 8-12 pallets that were donated weekly by Whole Foods Market and Amazon.
To help the center continue their volunteer efforts in providing aid to the Watts/Skid Row community, you can donate here.
