Baxter's Corner was one of a group of sponsors of The Morton Center's luncheon on September 30, 2014, to raise funds for the Center's Expressive Art Therapy Program for children.
As a table sponsor of the Words Are Not Enough event, Baxter's Corner produced laminated placemats featuring artwork by children in the program. One of the Center's therapists used the artwork to explain how art therapy is used to assist children whose families are struggling with substance abuse issues.
"Because we develop stories and art for children with the goal of helping them to develop important interpersonal and social skills, we were very excited about this opportunity to partner with The Morton Center in its valuable work with hurting families," said Mary Ellen Stottmann, co-founder of Baxter's Corner.
"As an artist, I understand how art can be used to help children express feelings and thoughts they may have trouble verbalizing," Stottmann added.
