Where can we send contributions to restore the salaries for the historic museum employees who lost their jobs?
To clarify, the employees did not lose their jobs. Their job descriptions changed and their salaries were cut by more than 25 percent.
Donations can be sent to Watkins Community Museum of History, 1047 Massachusetts, Lawrence 66044. The museum, however, cannot accept donations designated specifically to restore an individual's salary, Museum Board President Phil Godwin said. All donations go into a general fund. If you want the money to go to a specific individual, Godwin said, you should make your check out to that person.
