Trunks of Hope
The Florida Holocaust Museum has launched its 4th Annual “Trunks of Hope” Campaign to Provide FREE Educational Materials for Teachers! The FHM believes that educating our children about the past is the first step to creating a world without hate.
“Trunks of Hope” were developed to teach about the Holocaust, and combat hate and prejudice. The trunks are designed to give students tangible tools to make the world a better place. The materials have been selected to ensure they are appropriate for students at each grade level.
One million students have learned the importance of standing up against bigotry through these trunks. Last year alone, our trunks traveled to 21 states, reaching about 50,000 students!
We need your help to continue to send our “Trunks of Hope” to educators all over the United States at no cost.
Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, your donation today will go farther than ever. Our anonymous donor will match every dollar you donate up to $7,500!
***Donate today to be eligible to win FREE box seat tickets (dinner and beverage included) to an upcoming Tampa Bay Rays game!
