Donations Needed to Create the Manhattan Project Exhibit in Richland

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - The Hanford Reach Interpretive Center needs your help to keep the Manhattan Project alive.

The center's CEO says they are working to raise $30,000 in donations to create a Manhattan Project Exhibit prior to the opening of the new interpretive center.

They're asking supporters to donate $100 or more to make the project a reality.

"The people that were here and were part of that, whether they were part of the manhattan project or the cold war are obviously interested, but they're also very interested in telling that story to their grandchildren and future generations. It's a part of who we are," said CEO Lisa Toomey.

An anonymous donor has pledged to match all donations up to the first $10,000.

To deliver your donation, go to CREHST at 95 Lee Blvd, Richland or to The Reach at 1229 Columbia Park Trail, STE A & B, Richland.

To mail your donation, send you CREHST at PO Box 1890, Richland, or to The Reach at PO Box 1160, Richland.
