QUARANTINE PROJECTS

(click on link for more info)

Every week, as time permits, the staff at KAFCC will be providing stay at home projects for you to come and pick-up (curb-side) and do at home with whomever you might be quarantined with! We hope these projects will keep you engaged and maybe help you to de-stress during this very stressful time. We will be posting projects on social media and sending them out in our e-blasts. If you don't follow us start now and if you do stay tuned!
