The Children’s Museum of Southern Minnesota recently established a new community partnership with Feeding Our Community Partners (FOCP) through their Summer Pack Food Program. The Museum worked with FOCP and provided a One-Day Family Free Pass for each of the 1000 food packages distributed in June.
Kim Kleven, Vice President of Education and Learning Experience said, “These passes give families who may otherwise not have an opportunity to experience the joy and fun of the Children’s Museum. We are proud to distribute these passes as we continue toward our mission of providing ways and places for children to play.”
Leaders from the FOCP program also expressed their gratitude of the partnership with the Children’s Museum.
“From our volunteers to the students we serve, all were so excited about the Family Pass included in the box delivery. We had a dozen families pick up their items onsite at FOCP. When we showed them the pass their faces lit up! One family from Mapleton said they rarely come into town, but for this they definitely would make the trip,” said Lori Wollmuth, Community Relations Manager with FOCP. “Your thoughtful partnership brought smiles and kindness to so many families and children. I am so grateful we were able to connect and turn this wonderful idea into fruition.”
