Junior League Presents $200,000 Check to Children's Museum of Alabama

Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) -- The Children's Museum of Alabama got a rather large check Tuesday evening, a $200,000 check to be exact.

The gift was presented by the Junior League of Montgomery and was the largest ever amount presented to a single organization at one time.

The CMA was born out of the League's 2004 signature project.

After adopting a children's museum, the league commissioned a feasibilty study and the museum was created.

Now, the CMA has its own organization and board of directors and is a place for children from ages 1-10 and their families to learn through playing.

Those who attend the musuem can study land, water, the human body and how things work.

The Junior League of Montgomery continues their tradition of making Montgomery and the surrounding river region a wonderful place to live.

The Children's Museum of Alabama will meet the needs of all children in the state.

Once it opens to the public, the Junior League of Montgomery will provide trained volunteers for the museum.

The Junior League of Montgomery's generous financial gift to the Children's Museum of Alabama will enable children all over Alabama to experience the joy of learning through interactive play.
