HDC elevator fundraising update: we are almost 70 percent there!

HDC elevator fundraising update: we are almost 70 percent there!

JAHA has been working hard to raise funds to replace the elevator at the Heritage Discovery Center, which is out of service and requires a custom part to repair.

Donate securely online

This elevator is critical to the operation of the Heritage Discovery Center, as our beautiful building has five stories and needs to be completely accessible for all!

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we have raised $48,000. We are now almost 70% funded, well on our way to our $70,000 goal!

Further, we have been able to order the custom part, which will take 6-8 weeks to manufacture.

We are grateful for our community’s continued support as we work to complete this critical project. Our goal is to have a fully functioning elevator as the pandemic subsides, so that we can continue re-opening the building.

Every donation, large and small, makes a big difference as we move toward this critical goal. Please consider supporting this goal — contribute online at the button above, or send a check designated “elevator fund” to JAHA, PO Box 1889, Johnstown, PA 15907.
