We Change Lives – YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN!
What a year! Because of your generosity, we were able to say yes! Yes, to provide art, history, culture, and STEM programs to over 27,000 people this year. Yes, to 23 new partners across ten counties in our region. Yes, to the schools, libraries, and community centers from Williamsport to Selinsgrove, Benton to Shamokin, and everywhere in between!
Donors like you made it possible for us to expand the number of programs and events we produce by 20% this year. Maybe you’ve seen us at your local library, attended one of our events, seen all we are doing on our Facebook page, or read about it in the paper. Wherever you keep up with the Bloomsburg Children’s Museum, please know everything we do is because you make it happen! We think you’ll agree; we’ve been making the most out of every dollar trusted to us. I have to say; I feel a bit guilty because I get to see, first hand, the impact of your donations. I had a dad tell me that he’s amazed at what his son learns and retains in our science classes. I read a message from a mom who said she’d seen tremendous growth in her son with autism since being enrolled in our summer camps. Visitors from outside our area tell us countless times, “I wish we had something like this where we live.” We’ve partnered with local schools to identify education gaps and developed STEM, music, and fine arts programs to provide solutions for our community’s students.
Looking to 2023, your donations could be used to expand our offsite instructor program to include new destinations, help to bring our new Solar Energy exhibit to life, add interactive components in our PreK play area, fund Intro to Arduino Classes at your local school district, underwrite fine arts classes, support our free admission flagship events; The Bloomsburg Mini Maker Faire, Geology Rocks, and BloomCON Hak4Kidz and so much more!
Thank you for your support. I can’t wait to see the difference we can make next year!
