Home-Tech Donates Appliances to Golisano Children’s Museum

Fort Myers, FL, December 23, 2011 --(PR.com)-- The Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples (C’mon) received a few early holiday gifts, courtesy of Home-Tech, Southwest Florida’s air conditioning and major appliance sales and service provider. Home-Tech donated several appliances to the museum including: a Whirlpool washer and dryer, top-freezer refrigerator, and dishwasher, a Samsung counter depth refrigerator and a commercial ice machine.

“The appliances will be used to ensure the smooth, safe operation of the Children’s Museum,” according to Heather Patton, Director of External Affairs for C’mon. “The refrigerators and ice machine will be used in the Museum Cafe, providing food storage for birthday parties and cafe that serves Museum patrons. The washer and dryer will be used to keep the exhibits clean, providing a safe, enjoyable learning environment for the children.”

“We’re so happy to welcome C’mon to Naples,” said Sonya Sawyer, the Chief Financial Officer and volunteer liaison for Home-Tech. “Naples is no longer a place where people spend just a few weeks a year. There are many young families here now, and the children need a place to play and learn. C’mon is a welcome addition to our community.”

Having the appliances donated is a major cost savings for the start-up museum. Sandi Wilson, Director of Institutional Advancement at C’mon said, “Not having to purchase these appliances frees up funds that we can use in our exhibit areas. This is just one of the many ways that Home-Tech has shown its support for our efforts.”

The Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples, scheduled to open in February 2012, is currently under construction at North Collier Regional Park. C’mon is committed to nurturing bonds among families and all generations. The Museum will celebrate the natural curiosity of children by offering an educationally dynamic space with 13 exhibits that encourage exploration and discovery. The Museum will be accessible to all children, regardless of their physical or learning abilities.
