ACT Gives Back

As part of ACT’s mission to serve our local community, we launched the ACT Gives Back Program in 2018. During the run of Ragtime, we are collecting night lights for Lisowe’s Lights , which provides night lights for children entering foster care. Started in 2018 by then 7-year-old Saline County resident, Amelia Lisowe, Lisowe’s Lights has now distributed night lights to kids in all 50 states and internationally. Help ACT shine a light during what can be a dark and uncertain time in a child’s life by donating a night light when you visit us for Ragtime!

Donations will be accepted at Argenta Community Theater, February 19-29. Thank you for joining us in giving back to our community.
