NORWALK, Conn. – The Stepping Stones Museum for Children in Norwalk is partnering with non-profit Person-to-Person this holiday season to provide free museum memberships to local families in need.
For every Get One, Give One membership purchased or renewed by Sunday, Dec. 31, Stepping Stones will deliver a membership to a deserving family in lower Fairfield County. The families will be able to enjoy all of the benefits of membership, including free admission for a year and invitations to fun family events.
"We've worked closely with Person-to-Person over the years on toy collections, clothing drives and volunteer efforts," said Rhonda Kiest, president and CEO of Stepping Stones. "The organization's work is closely aligned with the Stepping Stones mission to create an environment that enhances a child's understanding of the world, inspires lifelong learning, and supports parents, caregivers and educators as facilitators of their children's exploration."
With locations in Norwalk and Darien, Person-to-Person provides emergency assistance for basic needs plus other support to individuals and families as they move toward financial stability. The non-profit envisions communities of financially-stable, hunger-free homes, with educational opportunities for all.
Kiest said that 125 memberships have already been donated through the holiday Get One, Give One program.
"There are over 5,000 families in the Stepping Stones community and we are thrilled to welcome the new families. In addition to helping a local family, a membership makes a great gift that friends and family will love."
