Holocaust stamp project reaches 3.3m

Not quite five years into an ambitious Holocaust-remembrance project, students at Foxborough Regional Charter School have collected 3.3 million canceled postage stamps toward the 11 million goal. Students, staff, parent volunteers, and friends of the school have been saving, trimming, and counting the stamps since 2009 as part of a community service initiative. Once collected, the 11 million stamps will illustrate the number of people killed under some estimates by the Nazi regime. Donations of stamps are sought, as well as volunteers to take stamps home and trim them. For more information, contact Student Life Adviser Jamie Droste at droste@foxboroughrcs.org.
