HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM OUR STAFF
Happy Holidays to all of our visitors, members, and supporters of the Pennsylvania Military Museum!
During this time of giving, many organizations are hosting donation drives & fundraising campaigns. Although we do not hold a fundraiser during this season, please keep the Friends of the Pennsylvania Military Museum in mind for the upcoming Centre Gives in May 2018, where all donations are matched by a stretch pool fund. This ensures that all donations go further to help our organization more than any other time of the year!
Donations we receive from Centre Gives help us:
- conserve Pennsylvania’s military heritage for future generations
- fund events that educate the public about Pennsylvania’s military heritage
- fund the Military Museum’s programs that preserve the memory of the sacrifice and service that brave Pennsylvanians have made over the years.
Thank you again to all for your visitation, support, and generosity to the Pennsylvania Military Museum. Have a wonderful holiday!
