Helping Foster Care Children is Grand Rapids Public Museum’s Goal
Children in foster care sure don't have an easy life. They have been removed from their homes due to neglect or abuse, and for their own protection. But typically they may move to several different foster homes during their young lives.The Grand Rapids Public Museum recognizes the plight of these children and wants to give them a warm, loving and exciting experience absolutely FREE!
With May being national Foster Care Month, the Grand Rapids Public Museum said, let's honor the month, and do something for the children and their families. So, they are beginning to raise funds to sponsor tickets for the children and their families to visit the Museum.
Foster Care Month is a time to celebrate and recognize those hero families who open their hearts and homes to children in need of foster care. It is a time to raise awareness about the urgent need for foster parents and the importance of supporting children and families who are impacted by the foster care system.
You probably didn't realize that the Grand Rapids Public Museum is over 160 years old. 160 years of bringing to West Michigan our natural history, science, and culture, along with a wide range of educational programs.
The Museum has partnered with local organizations that work with foster children and their families to distribute the sponsored tickets. The goal is to provide a fun and educational experience for children who may not have had the opportunity to visit the Museum before.
So how can you help? The Museum is asking for your support. A donation of $10 will provide one ticket for a child in foster care and their family. Donations can be made through the Museum's special website at grpm.org/supportchildren, and all funds will go directly towards sponsoring tickets for children and their families.
