2022 Trunks of Hope Matching Gift Challenge a Success

November 28th, 2022

Dear Southard Family,

I hope this email finds you well and that you had a meaningful and happy Thanksgiving holiday. I wanted to update you on the outcome of this year’s Trunks of Hope. Through the campaign we surpassed our goal and raised a total of $28,566! There were several supporters who give to this campaign specifically because of your match!

We can’t thank you enough for having the vision and leadership in providing a match to support our most popular resource – our teaching trunks! It’s because of our resources like our trunks that we are reaching more students in Florida and beyond than ever before! We aren’t even at the midpoint of our fiscal year, and we have already impacted almost 200,000 students! Your support of this program is more important than ever as we see a rise in Holocaust distortion and antisemitism. Our goal is to reach every student in our state and we are well on our way. Thank you for supporting The Florida Holocaust Museum and for your commitment to Holocaust education.

With Gratitude,

Erin Blankenship
Interim Executive Director
