We were so thrilled to have such great temperatures in and skies to allow us all to be outside on Saturday which was KiwanisOne Day. Here’s a picture of our president Sylvia, doing her best to clear the sidewalks in her neighborhood on a beautiful fall New England day. Stay tuned for other photos and videos to come to show how we give back to the community that we are proud of!

Our friends at Chelsea Prospers, are again highlighting how kids can be an inspired, when they have role models that give their time, and support ~ Posted @withregram • @chelseaprospers ✨Artist Spotlight✨ Meet the youth from @la_colaborativa!
These pieces were created by a group of 14 youth leaders participating in the Chelsea Collaborative Summer Youth Employment Initiative.
The youth created their pieces after several weeks of research and exploration of social justice topics that affect Chelsea’s youth. Through their art, the youth leaders send a passionate message calling for equal rights for immigrants, anti-racism and an end to police brutality.
See their paste ups on Cherry Street behind BD's Furniture.

What can you do in one day? Well we encourage you to #thinklocal. Clean up your neighborhood, or a local park. Read a story to a child. Help a neighbor with groceries or some yard work. Lend a hand, volunteer & give back. ... See MoreSee Less

Posted @withregram • @chelseaprospers ✨Artist Spotlight✨ Meet Kim Barzola! @kmizola is a first generation Quechua artist who lives in Salem, MA. She typically celebrates nature, food and community-building in her art.
Her mural on the side of the future El Dorado cafe (intersection of Congress and Division Street) is a scene common to Barzola's home in Peru and the property owners who emigrated from Colombia and the Dominican Republic. The mural pays homage to the hard work of coffee farmers.
Swipe to see her mural in Salem as well.

Posted @withregram • @chelseaprospers ✨Artist Spotlight✨ Meet Eileen Riestra! @artsycolor created this beautiful paste up which depicts two women working, one of the women is her partner's grandmother. ❤️
Elieen hopes that her work reflects the working women that are hidden in the corners of Chelsea. She writes, that these women are recognized "by her smile and/or for her effort to do her job well and in silence. The emotion that I want you to see is the beauty of these immigrant working women and how they can be an example for us to make a better America."
The main focus of the piece are two women working. She then added elements such as: tiles, tropical leaves and parrots. All bright colors while leaving the background of the women in black and white. Elieen mentioned that "the idea of having the models in black and white is to indicate that the immigrant woman remains in the shade but her work always shines. Having the other elements in bright colors is to indicate their work shining in America."
Swipe to see more of Elieen's work.
Elieen's piece can be seen on Cherry Street on the back of BD's Furniture.
