NEW YORK, April 6—The Italian American Museum announced today that it will begin accepting monetary donations to assist the victims of the earthquake in the Abruzzo region of Italy. Checks should be made out to "IAM EARTHQUAKE RELIEF FUND 2009".

Checks can be dropped off or mailed to the Museum, located at 155 Mulberry St., New York, NY 10013. The Museum is on the corner of Mulberry and Grand Sts. in Little Italy. Donations can also be made by credit card by calling the Museum at 212-965-9000.

Museum president Dr. Joseph V. Scelsa is requesting monetary donations only. Prospective donors are advised not to bring food, clothing or other items at this time, as there is no mechanism in place for delivery.

Founded in 2001, the Italian American Museum is dedicated to exploring the rich cultural heritage of Italy and Italian Americans by presenting the individual and collective struggles and achievements of Italians and their heirs to the American way of life. The Museum received its Provisional Charter from the New York State Board of Regents on June 12, 2001 and is a 501 (c) 3.
