Museum offers new outreach program

The Concord Museum recently launched a new community access program offering discounted admission to clients and employees of agencies supported by the Concord-Carlisle Community Chest. The new program provides $2 passes to local organizations; the regular admission fees are $10 for adults and $5 for children. The first organization to participate is Open Table, which provides hot meals and groceries to an estimated 100 families each week at First Parish in Concord. Peggy Burke, the museum’s executive director, said the goal is to attract visitors from the local community regardless of their ability to pay. Organizations interested in joining the community-access program should contact the museum at 978-369-9763, ext. 214.
