Marbles Kids Museum Teams Up With Chase on New Initiatives
Get a look at the the partnership's Marbles To-Go Play Kits
On Wednesday, Marbles Kids Museum, located in downtown Raleigh, announced a new partnership with Chase Bank that brings a few new initiatives for the region. The bank will be a partner for its Marbles To-Go Play Kits, which are curated sets of play-based learning activities. The kits arrive at a time when many kids in the Triangle are in distanced learning. For every kit purchased, Chase donates one to the Boys & Girls Clubs, which will distribute them to local families. (Last year, Chase opened its first retail banking branch in Chapel Hill and it’s planning three more branches in Raleigh and Cary by the end of 2020.)
“Academic success has always been a cornerstone of Club programming and these kits provide creative, hands-on learning to help engage and support our kids as they learn virtually right now,” says Hugh McLean, vice president of operations for the Boys & Girls Clubs, in a release. “These kits will provide hours of fun and learning for kids at our Clubs each day and be shared with kids who aren’t able to get to their local Club on a regular basis while schools are closed.”
Chase is also supporting a few other efforts: Chase is also supporting two other efforts from the museum: the Marbles LEGO Challenge videos, the YouTube series that offers how-tos in creating LEGO masterpieces, and 21Marbles, the young adult event series that picks back up when the museum reopens.
