The following is a scholarship testimony from one of our patrons:
"Our son enjoyed his time at ZACC immensely – thanks so much for making it possible for him to participate! He raved about the staff, art projects, and the the other children who attended. We were so impressed with your program and so grateful to you all for making it available to us and other low income families. I found some artwork on our sidewalk when I got home from work the other day. Your work carries on! Thanks so much – you guys ROCK!"
