    Can you spare $5 or $10 to help young artists realize their dreams? It's one of the best investments you'll ever make in our community! TRANSIT ARTS is helping to raise money to complete the renovation of 1251 Bryden Road (two blocks from Central Community House in Olde Towne East). The building will be home to the Walter and Marian English Center for Art & Community, a multi-generational arts center (from teens to elders) and the Carriage House will be home for the TRANSIT ARTS youth arts program. This is going to be a beautiful, well-equipped site for serious young visual, performing, and media artists to take a big step towards their life goals. Please help us with a contribution of any amount. You may make a donation: online at transitarts.com; send your contribution to; Central Community House, 1150 East Main Street, Columbus, OH 43205 (please make your check payable to Central Community House and write TRANSIT ARTS in the "notes" section); or drop off your contribution to Central Community House with a note that the donation is for TRANSIT ARTS. Of course, we will gratefully accept larger contributions if you are able but we are extremely thankful for each $5 contribution that we receive. We will list all contributors unless you ask to remain anonymous. Thank you!!
