Wondering what to do with your collection of Peace Corps materials?
The Answer is: You can donate them to the Friends of the Dominican Republic (FDR) Section of the Peace Corps Community Archives at American University.
What are the Peace Corps Community Archives?
The Peace Corps Community Archives (PCCA) is a collection of materials that were created and acquired by Peace Corps Volunteers from around the world that are being preserved to support research, create exhibits and provide information for educational and public programs that document the experiences and impact of individual Volunteers that served in the Peace Corps.
How can I donate to the Peace Corps Community Archives?
Just send an email to email@example.com and ask for the information about how to donate your collection of PC materials to the FDR Section of the PC Community Archives. You will receive the donation materials electronically by return email. Not only will your collection be available for your children, your family, and your heirs, it will be shared with generations of researchers and authors for years to come!
