Stepping Stones Museum for Children presented the global humanitarian organization Save the Children’s Hurricane Maria Relief Fund with a check for $4,500 on January 31st to help families in Puerto Rico who are still suffering from the storm’s aftermath.

Stepping Stones threw the epic Party for a Purpose fundraiser on November 16th in the museum’s dazzling multimedia gallery. Supporters, local community leaders and Norwalk Mayor Harry Rilling enjoyed Colony Grill pizza, dancing and music by the Fiesta Boyz. Representatives from Save the Children were on hand to share information about the organization’s mission to assist people trying to rebuild their lives.

“We are dedicated to the health of all children and many families in our community have loved ones in Puerto Rico,” said Rhonda Kiest, President of Stepping Stones. “We are grateful to everyone who came out to make a difference for these kids who are in dire need.”
