Midlands Gives!

May 1, 2018
12:01 am to 11:59 pm

Celebrate the Midlands spirit of generosity, and support the Friends of the Lexington County Museum on May 1, 2018 during “Midlands Gives.” Midlands Gives is a 24-hour, online giving event sponsored by the Central Carolina Community Foundation that brings the region together as one community, raising money and awareness for local nonprofits in eleven Midlands counties. The Friends of the Lexington County Museum group was able to raise more than $1,200 last year through Midlands Gives. These contributions allowed the museum to continue to offer free educational programs to school groups. Donations went to buy beeswax for candle-making, clay for the Native American program, reproduction shoes for our historical interpreters, and many other much needed materials for use in the educational programs. These are items that we can’t afford without the support of members of the public, so please add May 1, 2018 to your calendars and remember to visit www.MidlandsGives.org for more information including what other organizations are participating and how to donate.
