Since it’s inception THE MANTON AVENUE PROJECT have been lucky enough to receive free-of-charge space for our playmaking classes, Playwriting Weekends and performances thanks to the William D’Abate School and Moses Brown. But we have longed for a home of our own, a place that would not only house our offices and classroom, but give the MAP Kids a place that they could come to throughout the year after school to work on their plays or their homework. A five-days-a-week MAP Clubhouse that belongs to them.
Well, our days of dreaming have come to an end! On February 2nd we moved into our very own digs, thanks to the generosity of our friends at Olneyville Housing Corporation!!
In-kind items that we really need:
We’ve even set up a wish list on Amazon.com for your secure shopping pleasure. Items will be shipped directly to the clubhouse!
Checks can be made out to The Manton Avenue Project and mailed to PO Box 982, PVD, RI 02901.
