Preservation Month Food Drive

The Lexington History museum will be sponsoring a food drive to benefit The Lighthouse Ministries, an organization that provides food, shelter, job-placement programs, and more to needy men, women, and children in the Bluegrass region.

The food drive will be throughout the month of May, and there will be a donation box at the reception desk of the museum for you to leave your canned goods and non-perishable foods and log your donation. The Lighthouse Ministries is looking for the following items: coffee, canned vegetables, macaroni and cheese, dry beans, pasta, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, soups, spaghetti sauce, styrofoam plates, napkins, forks, spoons, sugar, creamer, cake mixes, and icing.

There are two types of prizes — if the winner is an individual, they will win a gift certificate to the museum’s gift shop and a guided tour for themselves and a set number of guests. If the winner is a business, they will win their choice of third floor meeting space at no charge. The museum offers excellent and flexible conference rental space in two of its third floor rooms; the Original 1900 Courtroom seats 130 theatre-style and features full A-V support. The Mayor’s Gallery is 2,200 square-feet available for stand-up or sit-down affairs. Either of these rooms would be perfect for a business meeting, event, or function.

If you are interested in participating or would like to know more, please e-mail the museum president at
