The Paso Robles Children’s Museum at the Volunteer Firehouse has received an additional donation of $1,000 to assist in program development.

The donation made last month will aid in program development for the Paso Robles-based nonprofit organization, formed in 2002 with the purpose of developing and maintaining an interactive educational facility for children, family and communities in the greater Paso Robles area while showcasing the heritage of the Paso Robles Volunteer Firefighters.

The $1,000 donation was made on behalf of community partners B. Wayne Hughes, Jr. and Wendy Hughes, co-founders of the Cantinas Ranch Foundation and philanthropists for community-based organizations in northern San Luis Obispo County.

“The Paso Robles Children’s museum is tremendously thankful to the Hughes family for their continued support of our organization and mission within the community,” says Director of the Children’s Museum Jennifer Smith, noting that the Hughes’ donations to-date have totaled $8,500, making them “Firefighter” – level donors for the cause. “With the help of such generous patrons, the museum looks forward to developing more educational programs and installations for area families to enjoy.”

In addition to the $1,000 donation, the Hughes family is donating 60 days of in-kind advertising on the new electronic billboard at the Paso Robles Event Center to help the nonprofit spread the word about its events and fundraising efforts.

“We are pleased to show our support for the Paso Robles Children’s Museum at the Volunteer Firehouse,” says B. Wayne Hughes, Jr. “Helping to ensure that proactive, positive, youth-based educational facilities are available to local children is critical to healthy communities and means a lot to me personally.”
