Local artists are meeting at the Ben Franklin Store in Baken Park to paint on Thursday afternoons at 1 p.m.
they have been painting boxes for the Memory Box Program.
Memory boxes are given out when an infant dies.
These Memory Boxes are given to parents who have experienced either a
loss by miscarriage or the death of an infant
child. Parents can keep mementos of the child in the
box, such as hospital ID bracelet, photos, cards etc. Having a Memory Box to
hold these items, helps the parents deal with their grief, and it opens the way
for their friends and families to talk with them about their precious child, who
lived such a short time.
