“We are delighted to continue this important and successful collaboration with Vroom for the benefit of children and families nationwide,” said Paul Siefken, president & CEO of Fred Rogers Productions. “Vroom’s support is helping us to achieve our mission of serving our young audience with valuable opportunities to learn and grow, both on-screen and beyond.”
