The Washtucna Historical Museum and Community Center received a $5,000 donation from Avista on Nov. 13, which will go toward helping to repair the museum's roof.

The donation came via the Avista Foundation, which is Avista Corporation's community investment program. The foundation provides funding to non-profit organizations in the communities that Avista serves in parts of Washington, Idaho, Oregon and Montana.

The check was presented by Paul Kimmel, the local manager of Avista's Palouse region. Karin Clinesmith, Vice President and Treasurer of the Washtucna Heritage Museum, accepted the check.

Earlier in 2019, the museum also received $24,000 in funds from Washington's 2019-21 capital budget to go toward repairing the building's roof. Leaks were first noticed in March, when late-arriving snow finally began melting. Those funds helped solve the immediate leakage problems in the building's display area and back storage area.
