The High Point Historical Society has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on November 29, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
We will be raising funds to continue conservation and preservation work on the Little Red Schoolhouse (affectionately known as Little Red). Little Red was recently moved to the High Point Museum campus. Once all the restoration work is complete Little Red will be used in a variety of ways by the Museum including tours and children’s programming.
