Mid-Columbia Children’s Museum (MCCM) is one of the newest members of the Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce thanks to the support of Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS).
WRPS, who is a Stakeholder chamber member, selected MCCM as its sponsored member for the year. The membership will give the children’s museum’s organizers more opportunities to share their message and further the mission to create an engaging, accessible, sustainable and permanent space for children and families.
“Membership in the regional chamber offers so much, from connecting with other community leaders and even seeking grants to make our vision a reality,” said Chelsea Blair, president of the board of the children’s museum. “We are exceptionally grateful to WRPS for opening this door for us.”
The effort to establish a children’s museum began in the winter of 2022 when a group of individuals connected on social media over their desire to see more engaging and educational experiences for kids in the Tri-Cities.
Organizers are conducting an awareness campaign throughout the Tri-Cities by bringing sample exhibits and activities for kids and information to community events. A list of those confirmed events can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/mccmuseum/events
MCCM is a non-profit and organizers are seeking 501(c)3 status. 3 Rivers Community Foundation has signed on as the non-profit’s fiscal sponsor so tax deductible donations can be made for fundraising efforts until 501(c)3 status is granted.
More information about MCCM, including a sign-up for email updates and forms for a community survey and volunteer opportunities, can be found at mccmuseum.org.
