"Everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts!"
Created in 2012 as a way to encourage people to give of their time, money and support to worthy causes, Giving Tuesday has grown to a worldwide movement.
The Middleville and District Museum is once again participating in the Giving Tuesday campaign that culminates on Tuesday, November 29th, 2022.
The Museum exists and thrives because people generously support the ongoing sustainability of the building and the preservation of its artifacts and genealogy records. . Without donors, the Museum would not survive. The public supports the Museum by visiting to view the exhibits, attending fundraising events and volunteering time and services.
The Middleville and District Museum has a volunteer board of directors supported by a multitude of regular and occasional volunteers that care for the Museum with countless hours of service. The Museum also benefits from a strong group of donors of money and materials. For large projects, the Museum relies on financial support from individuals and grants from many organizations and all three levels of government. Many local businesses donate building supplies, gravel and tools. Carpenters and retired craftsmen donate their time and expertise.
A few examples of donations that assisted in hosting the public events this season were bags of apples by McLaren Orchards, Solar Roasted Coffee by Fluid Coffee, baking by local volunteers, materials to dress scarecrows and bales of hay, This all helps the Museum provide fun events for the community.
The Middleville and District Museum is very grateful to have so many generous supporters and donors. Thanks to all those who contribute to the Museum's mission of preservation and education.
