Edison International/Southern California Edison Awards Grant to CDMOD!
The Children's Discovery Museum of the Desert proudly announces the receipt of grant funds in the amount of $10,000 for its mascot and community outreach program from the Southern California Edison/Edison International. This is the sixth year of supportive funding and partnership with Southern California Edison/Edison International and the Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert.
The sponsorship of Edison International strengthens and enhances the Museum’s commitment to continue its efforts to reach out to the underserved population of the Coachella Valley with the “Sunny” mascot program.
“Sunny” has proven to create an atmosphere of fun, imagination and excitement for the children and families of the entire valley. Our mascot has been designed to be warm and approachable. Sunny can be walked up to, touched, talked to, and immediately seen by children. “Sunny” represents the Museum with a friendly nod, a happy smile and a warm memory. The mascot program has crossed the gap of cultures with a safe presence and joyful encouragement that “learning can be serious fun!”
