12.12.12  Valley Gives!

The Birthday Open House also celebrates the Museum's participation in Valley Gives, a one-day on-line giving effort to raise thousands of dollars for the work of countless nonprofit organizations in the Pioneer Valley.  For 24 hours on 12.12.12, you can give online to support organizations as they continue to make western Massachusetts such a special place to live and visit.

Donations to the Emily Dickinson Museum on Valley Gives Day will help fund a much-needed fire suppression system in the Dickinson Homestead, which celebrates its 200th anniversary in 2013.
