WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The YWCA Lower Cape Fear saw over 120 people at its Potluck for Peace, for Kids! community art event on Thursday, July 21. This particular event was targeted towards children, teens and their caregivers.

Per the YWCA, people at the event took part in painting a rock garden of peace led by Helen Barnett from the Arts Council of Wilmington/New Hanover County. Between the art and conversations, guests could get food from the Trolly Stop and visit tables hosted by North Side Food Co-Op, the NC Diaper Bank - Lower Cape Fear, DREAMS, Yoga Village and Port City United.

“Thank you to everyone who came out for Potluck for Peace, for Kids! We had so much fun painting, playing, and eating. A great reminder that when the community comes together beautiful things can happen,” wrote the YWCA in a social media post.
