Northwest Railway Museum joins #GivingTuesday event on social media

The Northwest Railway Museum in Snoqualmie 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 Nov. 28, #GivingTuesday is the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the U.S., following the widely recognized shopping days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday was created to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities.

Donations to the Northwest Railway Museum support programming that fulfills the Museum’s mission “To develop and operate an outstanding railroad museum where the public can experience the excitement of a working railroad and see and understand the role of railroads in the development and settlement of Washington State and adjacent areas.”
