The University of Nebraska State Museum-Morrill Hall recently partnered with St. Monica’s to provide 162 free museum passes as part of the fall Community Access Program membership drive.
For every membership purchased or renewed, Morrill Hall donated two free passes to St. Monica’s. Museum members and visitors also had the option to purchase additional passes for donation.
“St. Monica’s does important work providing a safe space and helping women in our community,” said Susan Weller, director of the NU State Museum. “We were pleased to support them as our fall membership drive partner.”
St. Monica’s empowers women to achieve life-changing recovery through proven treatment and critical support services. The organization has worked since 1964 to provide recovery within a home-like environment to help women combating a variety of problems intertwined with substance use disorders.
“St. Monica’s is a team of passionate, caring professionals who help women overcome some of life’s most challenging struggles, helping them live better, healthier lives,” said Sarah Dunbar, St. Monica’s director of finance. “The women we serve who are mothers are eligible to have their children live with them in our secondary programs. Often there is difficulty in being able to take their children on fun outings without the help of donations to our organization. These passes will allow our clients and their children to experience the magic of Morrill Hall and learn through their experience, which otherwise might not have been possible.”
St. Monica’s is the eighth local organization to receive passes as part of the NU State Museum’s membership program. To date, more than 1,200 passes have been shared via the membership drives.
