NU State Museum gives free passes to Friendship Home
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The University of Nebraska State Museum-Morrill Hall recently partnered with Friendship Home to provide 100 free museum passes as part of a fall membership drive.
For each membership purchased or renewed during their fall drive, Morrill Hall donated two free passes to Friendship Home. Museum members and visitors also had the opportunity to purchase additional passes for donation.
Friendship Home’s mission is to support, shelter, and advocate for victims of domestic violence and their children. Services are available for anyone in the community experiencing physical and/or emotional intimate partner violence.
“With October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we thought it fitting to partner this drive with a vital community organization who gives refuge and solace to those who have suffered domestic violence,” said Susan Weller, director of the NU State Museum.
Friendship Home is the fourth local organization to receive passes as part of the NU State Museum’s membership program. CEDARS, the Malone Community Center and F Street Community Center received passes as part of the museum’s previous membership drives. The museum plans to support other entities with future membership drives.
