Protect Piggy Bank to fund classes

December 11, 2013

EASLEY — Piggy banks designed by local artists can be found in various restaurants and shops in Easley and Pickens as part of the Easley Junior Women’s Club fundraiser for the arts called Project Piggy Bank.

All money collected in the piggy banks will be used to provide scholarships for youth to attend summer art camps and classes at the Pickens County Museum of Art and History.

After the collection period, which ends Jan. 8, the more than 30 “divine swines” will be on display at the museum and then auctioned off in March to raise more scholarship money.

The Easley Junior Women’s Club, organized in 1959, is a federated club of the international organization, General Federation of Woman’s Clubs.
