Children from the Boys & Girls Club in Charlottesville are helping friends at The Foothills Advocacy Center through art.
The non-profit, which helps children who are victims of maltreatment, is in need of money after the state cut funding to the program. Kids from the Boys & Girls Club of Central Virginia decided to create paintings to help out.
"The kids here at the Boys and Girls Club are painting who they dream to be their super hero," said Kim Vierbuchen of the Foothills Advocacy Center.
People in the community donated $300 for each hero silhouette, with all the money going toward children in need.
"The more money we can bring into the organization, the more children we can service in the community," said Nancy Lauer of the child advocacy center.
The children from the Boys & Girls Club hope their art will be a super hero for children in need.
