Displaying the portraits of children in need of adoption.
We partner with the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) to display the MARE's Heart Gallery, photo exhibit in our stores. The exhibit features beautiful, color portraits of youth, primarily age 6 to 18, who are currently under the state’s care and wish to be adopted. Professional photographers from across the state volunteer their expertise in creating inspiring portraits that capture the essence of these children. The children include sibling groups, children of color, and youths with intellectual, physical, and/or emotional difficulties. We sponsor The Heart Gallery by funding some of the program’s expenses, and by providing a permanent venue for displaying The Heart Gallery exhibit at our stores.
Here’s where to find them:
Reading in the hallway near the escalators
Avon at the entrance to the Colossal Clearance center
Natick to the left of the front door
Nashua in the store office
The photos in The Heart Gallery continually change. They are updated as the living situation of specific children change. The Heart Gallery outreach program educates interested parents and families about adoption through foster care as well as the need for adoptive families for older children. Informational brochures are available for interested customers.
