As officials prepare to start repairing the old mint building in New Orleans, there are ways to help the museum get back on its feet.
Specifically, officials are asking for contributions to the Friends of the New Orleans Mint Exhibit fund. Donations will help with the installation of exhibits and the acquisition of New Orleans Mint related artifacts.
Corporate sponsorship for mint exhibits is also being sought. Those interested in helping may send contributions to: Susan Maclay, Executive Director, Louisiana Museum Foundation, 828 Royal St., #525, New Orleans, LA 70116. Or you may call (504) 568-6968.
