Learn How the Trunk Program is Funded


I have never seen my class more captivated.

- Teacher, Kilo Middle School, Auburn

 When I read the books it gave me a personal connection to a REAL person in the Holocaust.... then when we discussed the HISTORY, I had a personal connection from the story to put with the history.

The Holocaust teaching trunks are in constant demand.  Last year, the trunks were used 118 times by 8000 students in the state of Washington.

Help us to keep this program free for teachers and schools! At a time when budgets and programs are being cut, teachers need support and resources that are free.

$850 - Adopts one trunk for the 2015-2016 school year

$3000 - Underwrites a trunk

Any and all contributions to the trunk program are appreciated. 
Support is always needed to cover the costs of sending the trunks to and from schools.  (Schools/teachers are not charged to borrow trunks.)
