Annual Appeal

Our future is BRIGHT because of YOU!

2023 has been an amazing year for us. We couldn’t believe that in 2022, we served a record-breaking 28,000 people in our region. We were hoping for a modest increase in our numbers served this year, but with your support, at the end of October 2023 we were already over 31,000! The increase came from demands for our in-house and mobile programming for students of all ages. Because of our donors, we were able to keep pace with the demands for our services. We wonder what our final 2023 numbers will be.

What we can be sure about are the accomplishments we have already achieved this year because of supporters like you.

  • Served over 3000 people at our no-cost community events: Bloomsburg Maker Faire and BloomCON Hak4Kidz
  • Refurbished and expanded our dinosaur dig pit.
