FREE Passes To The Discovery Museums!

We absolutely LOVE The Discovery Museums in Acton!  If you haven't visited there before, I highly recommend that you do.  I am working on a blog post about our experiences there but got a very exciting email from them today that I wanted to share with you as soon as possible so you can mark your calendar and plan a trip!

When you visit the Discovery Museums between February 25 and March 10, for every new or gently used pot or pan you bring to donate, you will receive 2 FREE PASSES good toward your next visit!  These pots and pans will be donated to Household Goods Recycling of Massachusetts.  What a great opportunity to give... and get something great in return!

Here are all the details.  I'll remind you again closer to February 25 and will have my blog post about why we love the Discovery Museums so much before then as well!

ACTON, MA – The Discovery Museums has announced a unique program to collect pots and pans for HGRM, Household Goods Recycling of Massachusetts. For every pot or pan brought in to the museums from February 25 through March 10, the donor will receive 2 free passes towards a future museum visit. Pots and pans should be in new or gently used condition and may be donated with or without lids.

All donations will be given to HGRM, an independent not-for-profit organization based in Acton, MA that provides household goods, free of charge, to people in need. 

“This time of year, our supply of pots and pans is always terribly low. We are delighted with the Discovery Museums’ generous outreach to help remedy this problem,” said HGRM’s Executive Director, Sharon Martens. “Thanks to this drive, many more of HGRM’s client families will be able to cook healthy meals for themselves in their own homes."
