Historic Odessa Foundation is seeking holiday ornaments and decorations.
The nonprofit Historic Odessa Foundation, which owns and operates the Historic Houses of Odessa, is encouraging the community to donate old holiday ornaments and decorations through Dec. 31 to support the foundation’s Living History Education program and student workshops.
Donations can be dropped off at Historic Odessa Bank, located on the corner of Second and Main streets. Funds from the resale of the donated holiday decorations Dec. 3 during Christmas in Odessa will directly support HOF’s Living History Education program that provides students in kindergarten through fifth grade a hands-on perspective of life in a rural American village.
Although designed with Delaware teachers in mind, the program workshops have expanded to accommodate schools from other states, homeschoolers, youth organizations and summer camps.
