(Joplin, MO)The Creative Learning Alliance was joined by Olsson at their creativity lab (905 Main Street in Joplin) on Wednesday, October 26 for an exciting presentation. Olsson presented a matching check for $1,000 to the Creative Learning Alliance to kick start their Giving Tuesday fundraising for their STEAM Center. The funds will be a match for the community as they give on November 29, 2022. Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the the power of radical generosity. It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good.

Project Coordinator Neely Myers said, “We’ll be building a campaign for the next month encouraging at least 100 of our supporters to give $100 on November 29. We could not be more thrilled that Olsson committed to matching the first $1,000. It is community partners like Olsson that help us bring critical STEAM education in a fun atmosphere to the children in this region.”

Keri Kirby, Olsson Office Administrative Coordinator added, “Olsson’s mission is to support the community we live in and work in, and we feel it is important to enrich the lives of our youth with STEAM-based activities. We are honored to support the Creative Learning Alliance with their mission.”
