Upcoming Programs & Events
Thanksgiving Food Drive
October 1-November 30, 2021
We were blown away last year by the community's generosity with our Thanksgiving Food Drive, so we're bringing it back! Can we top the 20 bags and boxes we collected in 2020?
Drop off non-perishable, non-expired goods at the Shaker Historical Society through November 30th. Items can be dropped off inside the museum during our open hours or in the box at our rear entrance. The most needed items are peanut butter, jam/jelly, mac & cheese, pasta sauce, and canned fruit. Food will be will donated to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank after the drive. Let's all support our community this holiday season!
Current & Upcoming Exhibits
I Come as One — October 1 - December 12, 2021
Parenting is so rewarding and in many cases the hardest task a person can take on. Parenting alone during a pandemic is especially challenging. This exhibit displays the unconquerable strength of a single black mother. Told in photographs, stories, and art, I Come as One: Stories of Unconquerable Single Black Parents focuses on how many rely on friends and family to create a village of support, from a pandemic to the hustle bustle of daily life.
