America’s Car Museum will launch a community-focused program in Jan. 2013 titled “Giving a Break”, a $100,000 initiative that will work with United Way Pierce County to distribute ACM tickets to the area’s economically challenged, including veterans, children, and seniors. Giving a Break will also include ACM membership and event space donations to community non-profits in the military, education, and philanthropy sectors.
“A large portion of the funding for our museum came from our community,” says ACM President and CEO David Madeira. “Consequently, we feel a deep obligation to give back to our city. The Giving a Break program is about making our world-class attraction accessible to everyone in the community, regardless of income or economic challenges. After all, this is America’s Car Museum.”
