Donate Items to SRAC
SRAC has been open five days a week all year round for several years now with a staff made up of all volunteers. We do not take state or federal funding, and we work hard every day to raise funds so that we can continue to save local Native American artifact collections and to provide a place where the public can see them on exhibit, schools can bring their students to as part of their curriculum, university students and researchers can use for ongoing research, and for our community to know this region's prehistoric and early historic past. Literally, there is no place like SRAC anywhere else on the eastern seaboard - and that is why I hope that we can continue to do what we do.
We raise funds in any way that we can - admissions, sales, memberships, and of course donations - but I am sure that all of the museums in the area have fallen on hard times because of the economy. Lucky for us, some people have begun to bring us antique items that we can resell and we have a place just on the other side of the street at the Crooked River Co-op where we can sell these items (with no fees attached!)(click here to view) We have also been invited to take part in the Co-op member rummage sale that will be held Saturday February 8th too which would allow us to sell household goods, lawn equipment, tools, and well, anything except clothing really...Lastly, we are also planning on having the Waverly's Attic festival again this year to auction items as well.
So if you have items that you think could help SRAC raise funds - we would love to have you drop them off or have us come and pick them up. Thanks for whatever you can do to help us continue to do what we do for all of you!
