The Center on Central hosted two local allergy support groups (FEAST of the Main Line and PHACT of Chester County) on Sunday, December 1, 2013 for their first ever "Feel Good Forum" - at The Center on Central!
The afternoon featured a series of short, 20-minute "try-it" sessions for different age children (preschool, young elementary, older elementary).
Activities included Art, Music, Yoga, Movement, Talk it Out and Laugh Out Loud.
Goals included reducing stress and anxiety, giving a sense of more control, improving self-esteem, self-worth and self-confidence, helping kids with food allergies feel included and less isolated and addressing bullying.
The Center on Central provided free face-painting with a heart theme before the start of the November 2, 2013 inaugural race/walk at Lankenau Heart Institute, celebrating the recent opening of the new Heart Pavilion.
On October 26 and 27, 2013, Baker Industries - a nonprofit work rehabilitation program for vulnerable adults - hosted an Art and Artisan Fair in its Malvern location. Juried by the state jurors of the Haverford Guild of Craftsmen, (a chapter of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen), the event offered the opportunity for some of the finest artists and artisans in the area to showcase their work. The show also featured a selection of art by Baker's own workers, and served as a fundraiser and awareness-builder for Baker's unique program.
The Center on Central was proud to support this event, presenting in a variety of ways - including a pottery wheel demonstration.
