Community Service

Young Audiences Arts for Learning Here is some information on Edwards & Hill Office Furniture’s past charitable work.

Young Audiences/Arts for Learning (www.YAmd.org) is a Maryland non-profit organization that transforms the lives and education of our youth through the arts by connecting educators, professional artists, and communities. In September 2009, Edwards & Hill Office Furniture (www.EdwardsAndHill.com), a full-service furniture and media company, underwrote the complete costs of Young Audiences/Arts for Learning’s moving expense as well as all new office furniture for their new office space at Miller’s Court in Baltimore, MD. On top of the donation that totalled an excess of $60,000, Edwards & Hill also covered the cost of producing a video documenting Young Audiences before and after the move and the impact on its services due to the move. Through this video, it is hoped that Young Audiences will be able to inform a wider audience about its programs and services, which provides life transforming opportunities through the arts to nearly 220,000 youth around Maryland.
