Around the State: Culture Cares

https://i1.wp.com/www.nh.gov/nhculture/graphics/culturecares_sm.gif“Culture Cares” promotes community service projects statewide. Recently, the NH Department of Cultural Resources announced the program and its use of a centralized website to promote the program.

The “Culture Cares” website serves as a centralized place for organizations to promote their community service projects, raise awareness of groups in need and inspire others to give back, both by participating in existing projects and by creating new ones.

New Hampshire’s libraries, museums, historical societies, arts groups, theaters, movie houses and other cultural organizations have a long tradition of creating programming that contributes to and raises awareness of community groups in need. Organizing drives for food, toys, books and art supplies, reading to patients, raising funds for first responders and offering reduced tickets to student groups are all examples of the kinds of programming sponsored by New Hampshire’s cultural organizations each year.

In these extraordinarily challenging times, it’s more important than ever that we all work together to help those in need. New Hampshire’s cultural organizations have always been keenly aware of how important it is to support their communities, and we’re pleased that ‘Culture Cares’ can help them in their good work. – Van McLeod, commissioner of the Department of Cultural Resources

Cultural organizations from across New Hampshire are invited to submit their community service project information to the Department of Cultural Resources for posting on the “Culture Cares” website.
