We would like to thank the community partners who are helping to make The Children’s Museum of Rock County (CMRC) a reality. For the past few years, Pieper Electric, Inc./Ideal Mechanical has supported CMRC by providing us with an annual grant through their corporate foundation, the PPC Foundation. This year, however, their generosity was flooring. They increased their annual contribution more than two-fold by awarding CMRC a $22,000 grant to underwrite the construction of our infant and toddler area. We have been working with local architect Angus-Young to redesign the retail space in the Janesville Mall into a dynamic museum and playscape. This grant will go a long way in making that vision a reality.
We also want to recognize the MOMS Club of Rock County for their $475 contribution. The MOMS Club of Rock County is the local chapter of International MOMS Club ®, a non-profit organization founded to support mothers in their choice to be the primary care provider for their child/ren. Each spring, MOMS Club hosts their annual MOM2MOM Sale. Proceeds from the event are given to a Rock County non-profit organization chosen by MOMS Club members. This year, they chose CMRC. We are grateful for their contribution and honored to have been selected.
