Madison Children's Museum Receives Grant


By Cassie Paulsen

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Madison Children's Museum will now be able to continue a helpful program, thanks to grant money.

The Helen Bader Foundation first awarded the museum $6,500 in December 2009 to start a free program, called "Sparking Intergenerational Connections", for elderly people who face memory loss. The program also aims to help their children, caregivers, and grandchildren. Since then, 50 people have taken part in the program.

This new two-year grant, worth $22,000, allows the museum to expand the program. OFficials are hoping to increase outreach, bring together families, and offer opportunities for members of the community and those affected by memory loss to learn from each other.

The 90-minute program is conference one Saturday morning every month.
