WOLFEBORO —From September 16 through October 31, Wright Museum in Wolfeboro will host its annual canned Food Drive to benefit Life Ministries Food Pantry in Wolfeboro.
During this time, anyone who donates four canned goods or non-perishable items will receive half off admission to the museum. The annual canned food drive represents an ongoing partnership, as vegetables grown in Wright Museum’s Victory Gardens are donated to Life Ministries Food Pantry.
“Life Ministries Food Pantry provides well over 100,000 meals each year to area families, so it is important we support their efforts,” said museum Executive Director Mike Culver. An institution like ours cannot expect community support if we don’t give back as well. After all, Americans supporting Americans is the focus of the Wright Museum.”
Canned food may be dropped off at Wright Museum from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 12:00-4:00 p.m. on Sunday.
The region’s leading resource for educators and learners of all ages on World War II, Wright Museum features more than 14,000 items in its collection that are representative of both the homefront and battlefield.
