Which means we are poor, broke, understaffed and are always looking for volunteers and donations.
Consider a small check? Consider a LARGE check.
Consider a Endowment? All contributions are tax deductible.
Consider life insurance with the Toy Train Depot as recipient?
Perhaps you have some old model trains or railroad memorabilia to donate for a tax deduction.
Wooden toy trains, track, and books(for the kids area).
Paper towels, toilet paper, and paint/painting supplies(paint samples available).
Whatever works for you. We receive no government support, no taxes are used to keep us going, and we must pay the City of Alamogordo a fee to use a public park for our museum and train ride.
