From The Soto Family
“This week is always hard for us and today is excruciating. In the four years that Vicki has been gone, we have worked tirelessly to keep her legacy alive. We hope that she would be proud of everything we have done for her so far. We wouldn’t have been able to do that without all of you. When you show up to run in the 5K or you shop on Amazon Smile, or you purchase a sweatshirt from our Etsy store, you help us keep Vicki’s legacy going. We provide scholarships and books, we fill in gaps in local literacy programs, and we invest in our community in Stratford. A community that also rallied behind us four years ago.
So today we simply say THANK YOU to all of you for everything you have done to keep Vicki’s memory alive.
We are going to be silent for the rest of the day. Please use today to spread kindness and love. Also please visit mysandyhookfamily.org which is a website approved by the 12/14 families to show you what each family is doing to honor their loved ones.”
Thank you so much to all the teachers who organized and helped decorate the trees at the Victoria Soto Playground today! All of the ornaments were made by teachers and students of Victoria Soto School. Vicki loved this time of the year so it was wonderful seeing everyone getting into the holiday spirit!
Shop our ETSY store this holiday season and get a FREE gift with any purchase! Make sure you get your Team Vicki gear in time for Christmas! Happy Shopping!
Chaz and AJ support us every year for the Vicki Soto 5K so it was our honor to support them with a donation to their holiday toy drive this year. The Vicki Soto Memorial Fund, Inc. donated $2,600 to be used for the Boys & Girls Village. We hope it will make so many children’s wishes come true this holiday season!
Stop by on Saturday, December 10th from 1:00pm – 4:00pm to purchase all your Team Vicki Soto apparel. We have some great Christmas gifts for students and teachers! All hoodies are $5 off and you will get a free bag with any purchase. All kids will get a free book too! We hope to see you there! Happy Holidays!
