NEW HAVEN - Albertus Magnus College Associate Professor
Evie Lindemann, art therapy clinical coordinator, put her thinking cap on and
was determined to put her skills to work for her community.
Even one person can make a difference.
She reached out to community art supply
sources and received a donation of art supplies from Hulls University Art
Supply & Framing, 1144 Chapel St.
Lindemann worked with volunteers at the Hill
Regional Career High School, 140 Legion Ave., where a shelter
has been established for evacuees of Hurricane Sandy. They were able to put aside a "Quiet
Room" where Evie and the children, who have evacuated with their families,
can experience some art therapy together.
After working with the children Evie shared with much emotion, "I
am moved by what I have seen and being with the children."
