The Eastside Heritage Center is a private, nonprofit organization with a stated mission to steward Eastside history by actively collecting, preserving, and interpreting documents and artifacts and by promoting public involvement in and appreciation of this heritage through educational programming and community outreach.
Community participation has always been and continues to be essential to the success of the mission of the Eastside Heritage Center. The people of our community have much to offer in the way of historical information, special skills and willingness to commit to our mission. A contribution of a few hours a month of a person's time has tremendous value. The following information describes just a few of the ways in which a donation of your time can help foster the success of the Eastside Heritage Center, so that the history you have created and cherished will continue to offer meaning to those who follow.
