Holocaust Stamp Project continues


Students at Foxborough Regional Charter School have collected more than 3 million postage stamps, as part of a community service project to gather 11 million stamps to represent victims of the Holocaust. The Holocaust Stamps Project, in its fifth year, is facilitated by student life adviser Jamie Droste. In a midsummer milestone report, Droste said the school had just received a donation of 68,613 stamps from the Little Licks Stamp Club in Dover, Del. Many thousands more have come from community volunteer Gabe Trost. The Sharon Stoughton Hadassah, a new group that is helping with the counting, brought the total over the top to 3,002,897, she said. Donations of domestic and foreign postage stamps in any amount can be sent to Holocaust Stamps Project, FRCS, 131 Central St., Foxborough, MA 02035.
