COEUR d'ALENE — Five local artists and 11 children will be displaying their art on Saturday during the Kettle of Dreams event.

Kettle of Dreams started in 2018, with the goal of bringing awareness to local artists and collecting donations to support the community. Because of COVID-19, there will not be an event at the local art gallery. Instead, kettles will be on display at stores throughout Coeur d’Alene and Post Falls.

This year’s five local artists are:

• Tyree Riggs: Kettle will be displayed at Black Sheep (Facebook.com/TyreeRiggs)

• Julie Rae: Kettle will be displayed at Hayden Albertsons (artbyjulierae.com)

• April Near: Kettle will be displayed at Cabela’s (AprilNear.COM)

• Christina Hull: Kettle will be displayed at Fred Meyer east entrance (ChristinaHullart.com)

• Renae Christensen: Kettle will be displayed at Fred Meyer west entrance (Facebook.com/RLCCustomArt)

New this year, 11 children who took part in the Kroc Center’s Creative Art II Class will also be displaying their creative painted kettles throughout the community.

100% of donations to the Salvation Army Kroc Center— at a kettle, through the mail or online —stay in Kootenai County. Community center expenses are already covered allowing donations to directly benefit these and other community outreach activities:

•$25 can feed a single mom or dad and two kids

•$63 can shelter a family in crisis

•$150 can completely outfit a child with warm, winter clothing

•$225 can give a child a week at Camp

•$500 can provide Bibles and weekly mentoring for 15 youth

•$1,000 can prevent a family from becoming homeless at Christmas
