Located across the street from Skid Row, Inner-City Arts provides a safe and creative environment for kids in one of the toughest neighborhoods.
The TODAY Show and Walmart surprised elementary school children and instructors at Inner-City Arts to help the kids keep on their creative path. The organization was given the creative tools needed to keep these children dreaming, drawing, photographing, acting and more. Nearly 150 elementary school children also walked away with a Christmas gift of their own. In addition, Walmart provided a $100 gift card to each of the graduating seniors of the program to help make their transition a little easier. The Walmart Foundation also pledged to sponsor a class next year.
