ML&L Cares Program Spotlight: Impressions 5 Science Center
About three years ago now Will and I decided to implement the ML&L Cares: Trusted Choice for Charities program. What is this? Our agency will donate $500 each month to a local area non-profit that is referred to us by YOU our clients. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the charity, a quick description and contact information for the charity.
The name of the charities that are referred to us go before our ML&L Charity committee that consists of a team member from our service, sales and management team and they select one recipient each month. The charities that were not selected stay on our list for the following month. The more times the same charity is referred the more weight it is given before the committee.
This month’s recipient is: Impressions 5 Science Center
Impressions 5 first opened in 1972 and was one of the first hands on science centers in the country! It’s located in downtown Lansing in the historic Wagon Wheel factory. The name of the science center refers to the five senses and the interactive space that they provide for families. They have so many hands-on exhibits and educational activities that encourage risk taking, teamwork and problem solving to name a few for all ages.
The Science Center has about 160,000 guests on an annual basis!! They have a lot of different activities and events from birthday parties and “Make It” workshops to hosting area schools for field trips. It’s a very fun and exciting place to take kids from birth to teenagers. If you haven’t been in a while we highly encourage you to visit!
