From November 24 - December 10, the museum will serve as a collection site to support Community Action's Family Center. Community Action is an anti-poverty agency in Greenfield, Massachusetts, that serves families in Franklin County. This year, Historic Deerfield will support the Family Center by collecting donations of gifts for children up to 18 years of age to be distributed to families during the holidays. Friends and visitors of the museum may drop off a gift anytime during open hours, daily from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Visitor Center at Hall Tavern on Old Main Street in Deerfield.
Gifts should be unwrapped and can include toys, gift cards, and even helpful items like gift wrap and tape. The Family Center serves adolescents and teens in addition to younger children, so please help us provide for this age group too. To celebrate the end of the collection period, Historic Deerfield will accept a gift donation on Sunday, December 10, in lieu of museum admission. Visitors may redeem one gift for one admission to the museum.
