For Immediate Release
The Montshire Museum of Science in Norwich, Vermont, will be participating in a food drive for the Upper Valley Haven in White River Junction December 1-19, 2013, as part of the "19 Days of Norwich—1% for the Haven campaign." In addition to asking our visitors to bring a non-perishable food item to the Museum during this time, the Montshire will donate 100 admission passes to the Haven's food shelf recipients. Each pass admits two people.
”We are very pleased to participate in this effort to support the Upper Valley Haven,” said Jennifer Rickards, Associate Director of the Montshire Museum. “For many years, Montshire has provided admission passes to guests of the Haven, and we’re looking forward to supporting customers of the food shelf as well.”
