Wing-it Productions makes a habit of helping at-risk, homeless, and incarcerated youth, and now they’re asking for help. To stay afloat and continue their weekly teaching sessions for kids inside the King County Juvenile Detention Facility and also homeless kids–not to mention their performances at kids burn centers and cancer society camps, plus their regular theater shows–they’re holding a fund drive.
They need $5,500 in donations by Jan 31st to collect their money, at which point their board will put up matching funds. They’re at 76% as I write this.
Their company, which includes Jet City Improv, is over twenty years old, but things have been tough for theater groups over the last couple, and it would be a shame if they were unable to continue their work. And yeah, the founders are friends of mine.
So please, even if you’re not a Seattle local, consider making a small donation.
