Museum seeks donations for large format scanner
Submitted By the Washington Township Museum of Local History
Last August, wishing to participate and contribute to local history, the Tri-City Health Center made a very generous donation of $5,000 to the Washington Township Museum of Local History (WTMLH). The funds went toward the purchase of a large format high resolution scanner. This needed piece of equipment is now set up and beginning to play a key role in archival work to digitize museum collections - especially large, local newspapers!
Run by volunteers, the WTMLH relies on contributions to maintain its important work in the Tri-City Community. Unfortunately, the price tag on the scanner was $1,700 over the donation received from the health center, thus leaving a gap in funding. The museum covered the expense temporarily, but is looking to recover the money through donations.
Can you spare any amount toward this $1,700 need? If so, please contact the museum by phone at (510) 623-7907, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or in person at 190 Anza Street in Fremont. All donations are 100 percent tax deductible. Thank you!
