KITTY DEGREE’S ”LOVE FOR OUR COMMUNITY” CONTINUES THROUGH GENEROUS GIFT TO
THE CHILDREN’S MUSEUM
(Monroe, LA) The Northeast Louisiana Children’s Museum received a major boost towards the construction and educational programming of a new museum from one of this area’s most respected philanthropic organizations.

The donation of $400,000 was made on July 28, 2023, by the Remembering Her-The Kitty DeGree Foundation. “Today’s donation is going to make a positive difference in the lives and educational experiences of thousands of children now, and for many years to come,” said Children’s Museum Director Melissa Saye. “It is also an investment in our community and shows that our area understands the importance of expanding learning opportunities for our children.”

The Foundation was established approximately 20 years ago by local businesswoman Kitty DeGree and the Kitty DeGree Foundation board of directors has continued her legacy of helping community programs and services. Currently John Cameron and Anne Lockhart represent the board, with specific gratitude and recognition for the caring and dedication of its former president and vice president, Cindy Rogers and Scottie Traylor, who both recently passed away.

“Cindy, John, Scottie, and I have been so very excited to represent Kitty DeGree’s love of our community in a project of this magnitude and importance—especially because this museum plays such an important part in the lives of children and families in this region,” said Anne Lockhart.

Fundraising for the new educational anchor is a key focus in the upcoming months. Development Director Dawn Landry said “Our children are our most precious commodity. This facility is going to be such a source of pride for our community.

Opportunities for businesses and families to also participate and donate to the museum can be found at nelcm.org or by contacting Dawn Landry at [email protected] or 318-361-9611. The Northeast Louisiana Children's Museum
