Can you help us today?
Today, December 1, 2020, is Giving Tuesday. What is Giving Tuesday? It is a global day of generosity that encourages people to do good in their communities. It is a global movement to unite people the world over in the spirit and act of generosity – a value that unites people of all races, faiths, and political views.
Generosity gives everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of others, and is a fundamental value that anyone can act on.
I am asking you, our members and friends, to consider giving to the Anthracite Heritage Museum and Scranton Iron Furnaces Associates. This can be a gift of your time in volunteering, of your resources in monetary donations or increased membership contributions, or donations in kind for events or other needs.
As I’m sure you’ve frequently heard this year, the pandemic is taking its toll on almost every aspect of our lives. Our Museum will likely remain closed until Spring of 2021, which has and continues to affect revenue generation and programming momentum. While our PHMC staff have been created online programs, we need to continue to develop long-lasting virtual and interactive programs to engage wider and more diverse audiences. We are also looking to build the organization moving forward, integrating new arts and history initiatives, reigniting interactive programming, and continuing to maximize the lessons we learned during the pandemic into new directions in museum education.
Please, consider a gift to the AHMIFA on this Giving Tuesday. And THANK YOU for your continued support of our organization.
