Scenes And Songs For School Supplies NYC - August Edition
Various NYC casting offices will be participating in SCENES AND SONGS FOR SCHOOL SUPPLIES - a charity event cooradinated by various members of the NYC Casting Society of America to benefit First Day NY (http://www.firstdayny.org/).
This is a special BACK-TO-SCHOOL edition of Meals for Monologues. First Day NY is a fantastic 501c3 organization that works to make sure children living in NYC shelters have everything they need to get a great start on their first day of school.
Instead of food items, we are looking to collect the following items:
- USB Drives (8GB preferred)
- Binders (1- or 2-inch)
- Boxes of crayons (any size box is great)
- Packages of spiral notebooks (college ruled only, single or mutliple-subject)
- Watercolor paint sets
- Pads of colored paper
This is a charity event to benefit First Day NY and collect school supplies for children living in NYC shelters. It is open to anyone who wants to participate - donations are greatly appreciated, but not required. If interested in donating, we suggest bringing two items, but as always, you are more than welcome to bring MORE than two items for donation. If you’re able to bring a set of all the listed items - that’s amazing! We always appreciate everyone’s generosity.
And as always, if you’ve participated in any previous event, you’re more than welcome to come attend again in July - the more the merrier. It’s all for a great cause!
So far, we have participants from Telsey + Co, Tara Rubin Casting, Duncan Stewart and Co., Manhattan Theatre Club Casting, Barden/Schnee Casting, Marc Hirschfeld Casting, Innovative Artists Agency, The Mine, Harden-Curtis Associates, Stone Manners Salners, Take 3 Talent Agency, CESD Talent Agency, The Talent House and more.
