In order to do that we need you to find them all scattered through the Museum. There will be a little treat for you on your way out as a thank you for all your help.  Help us find all the Grinches this holiday season!

Help Us Give Back – In the true spirit of the season, The AACA Museum, Inc at Hershey is teaming up with Central Pennsylvania Food Bank and Toys for Tots for a food and toy “drive” throughout the holidays. Central Pennsylvania’s Food Bank is a non-profit organization that helps provide food to over 55,000 people in need every week. You can help by donating non-perishable food items or by donating financially. With access to the wholesale distribution market, Central PA Food Bank can stretch each dollar you donate. For every $1 donated, the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank can provide 6 meals to hungry individuals. The AACA Museum will also be collecting new, unwrapped toys for children up to age 16 in support of Toys for Tots.    Donations will be accepted from November 16 – December 20, 2018.   Thank you for your generous support of those in need this holiday season.
