Chloe has been an active volunteer at the Children’s Museum since October 2015. Chloe’s work on Thursdays with the Programming Prep team has led to her contributing over 200 hours of her time while she prepares the materials used by our visitors. Her favorite job is preparing wax paper sheets which are used in our Paper, Trees & Me school program, which just so happens to be the museum’s most popular program!
Chloe’s favorite part of her day is seeing the smiles and hearing the laughter from all the children who visit the museum. She knows her hard work directly benefits their experience, and she is happy to help.
Thank you Chloe, we’re lucky to have you on our team and look forward to seeing you continue to be amazing!
