1917 War Chest

The War Chest was used as a means to gather donations and create awareness of the campaign to raise funds for the war effort. It was essentially a temporary office with service windows where citizens could buy Liberty Bonds and Ration Coupons. Due in part to these campaigns American forces began arriving in Europe in large numbers by mid-1918. Sadly this War Chest would be needed again during the onset of WW2.
