Each year, the Vicki Soto Memorial Fund, Inc., picks several local donorschoose.org teachers to support. One of the classrooms we helped was Ms. Meyer’s 4th grade classroom. We just received these wonderful thank you notes from her class. It’s so good to know our donation had such a positive impact!
The Vicki Soto Memorial Fund has just helped four classrooms in Bridgeport, New Haven and Stratford through DonorsChoose.org. All donations are related to literacy which is what VSMF stands for. Please help these amazing and dedicated teachers in your area!
On this Giving Tuesday we just want to say thank you for continuing to support us as we keep Vicki’s legacy going. When you donate to VSMF, shop in our ETSY store or run in the Vicki Soto 5K you help us continue to do the following:
