The Sooke Region Museum is now accepting donations of Aeroplan miles to enable students from across Canada to intern at the museum.
An initiative to benefit students and the museum would provide much needed help with the preservation and restoration of artifacts. As a not-for-profit organization, the Sooke Region Museum relies heavily on volunteer input and donations to assist with funding and to enable community projects to flourish.
Air Canada’s Aeroplan, recently set up a Charitable Pooling Program for people to donate their accumulated Aeroplan miles to registered charities in order to improve the lives of people in their local communities and the Sooke Region Museum is now a participant. The donation of miles would provide an opportunity for university and museum students from across the country to spend time in beautiful Sooke and in turn help the museum with specialist restoration projects.
It’s a great way to help without much effort! Just log onto the Aeroplan/Sooke Region Museum page at http://beyondmiles.aeroplan.com/eng/charity/91 and donate.

The museum thanks you for your generosity.
