George W. Bush Childhood Home shares insight into his nonprofit as Permian Basin Gives kicks off this week

MIDLAND, Texas (KOSA) – On Tuesday, May 17, the Permian Basin Gives will bring everyone together for a single day of fundraising. Money raised will help hundreds of non-profit organizations in West Texas.

The one-day event encourages people to create a meaningful impact by donating to nonprofits that serve the community.

The pandemic is what started Permian Basin Gives to help nonprofits as they adapt due to COVID-19. One of the 117 participating nonprofits is the George W. Bush Museum in Midland.

Jacyln Woolf, Executive Director of the Bush Museum, says the museum allows visitors to glimpse life in the 1950s as seen through the eyes of George W. Bush as a child with his parents.

“Being able to make this presidential site look almost the same as when the Bush family lived here is a way to tie that past to the present,” Woolf said.

Woof says that without the support of the community, it would be impossible to continue the upkeep of the house.

“Kids who come here on field trips are always amazed by the TV in the living room as well as the glass bottles,” Woolf said.
