Neiman Marcus has selected the Creative Arts Program at Cook Children’s Medical Center to receive a donation in honor of its Fort Worth arrival at The Shops at Clearfork.
“Cook Children’s and Neiman Marcus have each made a commitment to serving the children and families in our community, so the partnership between our two organizations is a natural fit,” said Grant Harris, vice president of Cook Children’s Health Foundation said in a news release.
In 2013, Neiman Marcus began focusing community support on organizations that provide enriching arts education and experiences to youth. Research has proven that students who receive arts in their curriculum tend to matriculate and graduate at higher rates, score higher on the SAT, and become more creative problem solvers and engaged civic leaders.
“Neiman Marcus Fort Worth and Cook Children’s Medical Center have a longstanding partnership in the community. I have participated in the Experience the Mission program with the hospital, and it has made me appreciate how fortunate our city is to have the outstanding programs for our local kiddos and their families, especially Child Life and the Creative Artists in Residence Program,” Scott Mitchell, vice president and general manager of Neiman Marcus Fort Worth, said in the release.
In addition to the donation, Neiman Marcus is saluting the partnership with Cook Children’s by selecting patient art pieces to be displayed at the valet entrance store window.
The store at The Shops at Clearfork opens to the public Feb. 10.
