Dominion Foundation Supports Providence Children’s Museum

PROVIDENCE, RI – Providence Children’s Museum, an active place where kids and grown-ups play and learn together, recently received a $10,000 grant from the Dominion Foundation – the philanthropic arm of Dominion Resources, Inc. The funds support kids’ hands-on science learning in activities related to the Museum’s Play Power exhibit, Imagination Playground, and two participatory plays: “No Time to Waste,” about the importance of recycling, and “After the Beanstalk,” exploring spatial thinking challenges.

Dominion owns and operates the Manchester Street Power Station, located on Point Street in Providence. Manchester Street supplies electricity to over 1.5 million homes, businesses, hospitals and schools in Rhode Island. “Dominion is proud to energize the communities where we operate – not just via its our day-to-day operations, but through our employee engagement and charitable contributions too,” said Kevin Hennessy, director of federal, state & local affairs in New England for Dominion Resources, Inc. “Providence Children’s Museum is a natural partner for us. It enhances the lives of those in this community via hands-on learning.”

“We are deeply grateful to Dominion Foundation for supporting Providence Children’s Museum,” said Museum Executive Director Janice O’Donnell. “We are thrilled that Dominion shares our belief in the importance of active, hands-on discovery for children’s healthy development.”
