The Gift of Learning

Friday, December 10th will be a special day at the Museum of Peoples and Cultures, and anyone is welcome to attend.

The MPC will be joining with BYU’s United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) club to offer an afternoon of learning and fun to children for an early Christmas present. The Gift of LearningThe event will run from 4 to 6 p.m. and will include 4 learning stations, a video, and treats. The categories of the learning stations include math, geography, reading and writing, and art. Children are able to come in at any time and rotate through the stations as they please, free of charge.

“We want to show the kids that the best gift for your self is education,” said Jessica Myers, UNICEF club member.

According to Myers, 24,000 children die every year due to catastrophe, war, famine, and other grievous causes. UNICEF members desire to bring that number “down to zero” by doing whatever they can to serve in their community and without.

“Our goals are to educate members throughout the community about children around the world who are in need of help,” Myers said.

Both the MPC and the UNICEF club hope to give the children of Utah Valley a unique and exciting experience.

“The children will leave the Museum with more than just some treats and a craft,” said Anna McKean, promotions manager at the MPC, “they will get to take new knowledge that they can share with others.”
