In an effort to raise awareness about organizations in Collier County that provide much needed direct service to our community, The Holocaust Museum is initiating an “Alternative Admission Day” each month, beginning in January 2012.
Each month, The Holocaust Museum will spotlight a different organization that is taking action in the community on its website and Facebook page. The second weekend of that month when visitors come to the Museum, rather than paying the regular admission, they can donate an item of equal value, which will then be given to the organization.
This new project is one way for the Museum to fulfill its mission of promoting respect and understanding by teaching the history and lessons of the Holocaust. A timeless lesson is to reach out our hands to support those in need when we have the opportunity.
We hope you will join us!
