You Are Invited ~ 3rd Annual Holocaust Stamps Project Open House ~ Sunday, April 30th

You’re Invited to VIEW Our Holocaust Stamps Project COLLAGES!  Join us between 1PM and 3PM here in the Media Center here at Foxborough Regional Charter School for this school wide, open to the public, community event.

Join us for the latest project news & to view the many completed collages.  Special Guest Speaker, Mr. Sam Weinreb will join us and share his compelling story of survival despite having lost his entire family and enduring confinement at Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp.

We would like to thank our donors, volunteers and the community and share with you our progress! The Project has received donations from all over the globe – to date about 81% of the stamps needed to reach our goal have been received! Remarkable progress has been made towards reaching the goal of collecting 11 million postage stamps. Every stamp that the students touch brings them one step closer to understanding the immediate impact and long term effects of the intolerance and incomprehensible evil acts of the Third Reich during World War II.

Donations gratefully accepted to support the continuing work of Foxborough Regional Charter School, a Foxborough-based school initiative supporting tolerance, diversity and acceptance. Please RSVP via email if you will be joining us for our 3rd Annual HSP Open House. Your response will help us better prepare for your arrival. Feel free to share this information with others you feel may be interested.
