FACES Cleans Up with Dirty Laundry!

FACES of Clay County had its 3rd annual spring homeschool production: Dirty Laundry in May. Performers included youth from kindergarteners through seniors in high school. These amazing children and teenagers all had the opportunity to perform on a real stage at Community Theatre of Clay County!

What is FACES?

What a great acronym! But what does it stand for and what do they do? Their title stands for Fine Arts Community Enrichment Services of Clay County. They exist to improve the Clay County community by providing opportunities for participation in fine arts related activities and by finding ways to support local charities when they are able.

Giving Back

This year’s FACES spring homeschool production was called Dirty Laundry. The play was geared toward youth in the Clay County area. With the performances happening on Mother’s Day weekend, they felt it was fitting to support mothers in need. To that end, the organization chose to partner with the Covered In Love Diaper Ministry. Thanks to the generosity of their audiences and cast, they were able to donate several packages of diapers as well as $217 in cash to buy more!

Major Impact!

Founder Tammy Emmert sums it all up with this quote: “FACES may work in a variety of buildings, such as community centers, nursing homes, or preschools. We strive to serve and bring joy to the hearts of all ages. Whether we are dealing with buildings or people, there is one simple way to sum up our mission: Always leave it better than you found it.”
