The Biggs Museum of American Art and Del-One Federal Credit Union announced on Feb. 20 a new partnership titled "Quarters for Kids" to help celebrate the Biggs Museum's 25th anniversary year.
To kick-off the program, Del-One invested $10,000 in the Biggs Museum to fund special programs and field trips at the museum for underserved children and families. Funding will enable the museum to host more field trips and families than before. Specifically, it helps to fund free admission for children, as well as museum programs like Biggs Kids in which children participate in a free, hands-on craft the first Saturday of every month in the Child HELP Foundation Studio.
"Quarters for Kids" kiosks will be installed in the lobby of the Biggs Museum and the Downtown Dover and West Dover locations of Del-One Federal Credit Union. At these interactive kiosks, children will be able to insert quarters to help support Biggs Museum programs — with the overarching goal of giving children a better understanding of financial literacy and the importance of philanthropy. The kiosks will be open to the public in early March.
"We are thrilled with the Del-One partnership that jump-starts such a worthwhile cause. The Biggs is proud to host hundreds of children each year from families in all strata of economic status. Given the proven leveraging impact on disadvantaged children, we decided to focus on them as a major component of our anniversary campaign. Del-One's leadership is most appreciated," said Biggs Museum Executive Director Charlie Guerin.
