North King County Enhanced Shelter at the Oaks
accepting art works Saturday noon to 2pm

Lake Forest Park artist Billy King organized an art drive for art works to hang in the new North King County Enhanced Shelter at the Oaks. (see previous article)

At the drive, held Saturday, February 20, 2021, Billy was hoping for 124 works of art - two for each resident room in the facility.

We received 150 donated works of art! Can you believe it! I'm still getting calls from people wanting to make additional donations.

Billy said that local artists stepped up to help but most of the donations were from seniors looking to downsize - and happy to find a good home for their cherished pieces.

With that success, Billy now has larger ambitions - and he's counting on our readers to help.

Wow! Shoreline Area News casts a wide net, as I was still getting phone calls about the project days after. So we are going to do it one. More. Time.
