This has been a difficult year for our community. The Museum is committed to helping Wilmingtonians by volunteering and supporting our partners One Village Alliance and West Side Grows. We invite you to join us by helping with the efforts below.

Help Beautify the Freedom Center
One Village Alliance has moved into a new Freedom Center on 31st and Market Streets and needs help making the new space beautiful. Individuals, pods, or household groups will work outside, socially distanced, to paint walls, chalk messages of peace, and help out with exterior cleanup. If you are unable to volunteer, please consider making a donation at iamthevillage.org.
