As we enter the winter holiday season, and you plan your end-of-year giving, I am writing to ask you to consider a special project of the Friends of Thomas Edison National Historical Park.
We have set a goal of raising $15,000 to conserve the Electrical Vehicle Charging Station at the garage on the grounds of Glenmont, the Edison family home in Llewellyn Park, West Orange, New Jersey.
Edison was an early proponent of electric vehicles. The Charging Station at his garage was one of the earliest installations of its kind. The Edison household used it to charge the many electric vehicles Mr. Edison owned.
As EVs assume an increasing role in our mobile society, we need to study and celebrate the developments that have led to today’s progress. Please help the Friends conserve this important part of our technological history.
I hope you will decide to join us in this endeavor by making a contribution here online using the donate button or by mail using this form. FoTENHP is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and your contributions are tax deductible.
On behalf of the Friends of Thomas Edison National Historical Park, I wish you and yours joy and peace in the coming year.
Thank you for your consideration,
Friends of Thomas Edison NHP
