Wright Museum hosts food pantry drive

From August 15 to September 15, Wright Museum is accepting donations to support the Kingswood Regional High School Food Pantry.

Individuals who donate 2 boxes of single serve pre-packaged snack foods, such as granola bars, crackers with peanut butter, protein bars, crackers or nuts, will receive half off admission to the museum.

“Many kids in the high school go without food, and so we want to do our part to support their food pantry, which benefits these kids,” said museum Executive Director Mike Culver. “We’ve been told that snack foods are the best donation.”

Food may be dropped off at Wright Museum from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and noon to 4 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 home-front and battlefield.
