Learning Through Service Trunks: Donations Needed!
Last year, hundreds of school children and community members were able to get a better understanding of the service experience through the travel trunks loaned through Madison’s Wisconsin Veterans Museum. Based on visitor feedback regarding these trunks, being able to touch, hold and try on these items is a very powerful way for our audiences to connect with veterans’ service stories.
What and How to Donate
In 2018, we would like to start building our own military trunk collections and curricula. Please consider donating uniforms, military artifacts, government-issued items and personal effects (photos, letters, maps, foreign currency, etc.) from all U.S. military service eras. We are especially interested in collecting the stories associated with all donated items.
This is a unique and very personal way to share your own service story, or to honor a friend or loved one who served. To make a donation or find out more contact Education Programs Coordinator Kristen Scheuing at (414) 273-5533 or via e-mail.
