Memory Box Project creates heirlooms for families of fallen soldiers 

 

Handcrafted by Paso Robles local, David Bouillez, the memory boxes are a representation of the sacrifice of every soldier and the commitment of everyone who has lost a soldier.

–The Memory Box Project is a non-profit organization that accepts private as well as corporate donations in order to serve families of soldiers killed in recent wars. The Memory Box Project was created in order to provide these families with a sanctuary for the memories of their lost loved one. These keepsake boxes are gifted to families of American soldiers who were killed in action in Iraq or Afghanistan. The boxes are funded by private and public donations. Memory boxes are also available for purchase for all service members from past and present wars.

Handcrafted by Paso Robles local, David Bouillez, the memory boxes are a representation of the sacrifice of every soldier and the commitment of everyone who has lost a soldier. Bouillez uses American-made products and sustainable cherry wood from salvaged trees and reclaimed wood. The top is engraved with an American flag, appropriate insignia, a fallen soldier silhouette and the words “All gave some, some gave all.” The front of each box is personalized with the name, rank, branch of service and the dates of birth and passing of the fallen soldier.

To request a Memory Box, sponsor a family, donate, or for more information visit the Memory Box Project website or follow the project on Facebook. Fallen Soldier Memorabilia Boxes, Inc. received the honor of “Top-Rated NonProfit” for 2016 from Great Nonprofits.
