This year on #GivingTuesday, please consider supporting the York County History Center’s “Send a Kid to the Museum” campaign. Our goal is to raise $5,000 for our program to help York County schools bring their students to our museums for field trips! Your donation will help cover the cost of transportation, supplies for hands-on activities and a tour with a trained guide.
Many, many school children have never been to a museum… any museum! And many school districts cannot afford to contract for buses or pay the admissions (even discounted admissions) so that students can have the experience of traveling out of school to visit a museum.
We know that students who are able to connect with subject materials through experiential learning perform better in school. History provides them the ability to reflect upon past events, draw connections to the present, and consider the future.
With your help, the York County History Center can help ensure our students enjoy experiences beyond the classroom that inspire them to learn!
