Yes Arts Amazon Wish List

Yes Arts is a community arts center in the heart of Frankfort fostering a safe, inclusive space where all people can create and heal. Recently, they moved into a permanent location at the old Frankfort Plant Board building on W. 2nd St. They are currently seeking supplies, activities, and furnishings for their youth program. Our Yes Arts Youth Program, launched in partnership with local schools and social service organizations in 2018, provides high quality out-of-school arts programming to promote healthy development and alternatives to substance use. 

You can view their complete wish list above, with links to Amazon, Target, IKEA, and Ruggable as well as a link to their Amazon Wish List. Purchased items can be dropped off at the Frankfort Elks Lodge #530, 309 Lewis St. Frankfort, KY 40601.
