The Mint Museum Offers Reduced Admission for Food Donations Museum asks for communitys help to restock local food bank
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (November 18, 2008) ? This winter Andy Warhols famous Campbells Soup Cans wont be the only food items on view at The Mint Museum. Through February 15, 2009, visitors to the Mint Museum of Art and the Mint Museum of Craft + Design will receive $1 off admission when they bring in a canned good or other non-perishable food item. The food drive will benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina.
With the struggling economy and the holidays around the corner, we would like to do as much as we can in helping keep Second Harvest stocked, said Elizabeth Isenhour, Marketing & Public Relations Manager. Offering reduced admission is a great way to get the community involved in giving back.
