The WMPM has made great strides toward their goal of opening their doors in 2015, and momentum and enthusiasm are growing in our community. The museum is launching an appeal to the “10,000 Families” in western Maine who will most benefit from this emerging community resource: families with young children. The WMPM has received encouraging support from some major donors; however, the families of average means are perhaps the most critical factor in the museum’s success. There are over 60,000 families in the surrounding area, based on recent census data. If only a small percentage of these working families make a one-time donation of $25 or more, the $250,000 the museum hopes to raise with this appeal would allow them to begin work on their building. Think of all the things we spend that amount of money on - that same amount of money could be directed towards building a wonderful play and learning environment that our children could enjoy for years!
