Show your support for the arts in schools, and help provide a therapeutic outlet for those with developmental disabilities! For the past decade, artist Raphael Delgado and his sister Veronica have been giving back to the community with Crayons to Canvas Art Supply Drive. Through the end of the month, donations can be brought to R&M Framing Studio (1200 S St., Sacramento) during regular business hours. Donations of binders, pens, pencils, cardstock paper, puzzles, board games, crayons (of course) and other items will go to benefit Ethel Phillips Elementary School and Developmental Disabilities Service Organization. For more info on this awesome cause and a full list of requested materials, visit or email
