Happy Valentine’s Day

BRIDGEPORT—Foundations in Education, which supports Catholic education throughout the Diocese of Bridgeport, has issued a Valentine’s Day card that is winning the hearts of all those who see it.

The heart-shaped card features the happy and hopeful faces of students who have been sponsored by Foundations in Education “Leaders of Tomorrow” program.

This year, FIE donors sponsored 73 Leaders of Tomorrow (LOT) scholars within diocesan elementary schools—a record high!

On Friday morning, Foundations in Education sent each sponsor a personalized valentine with the following message from their LOT students, “With grateful hearts, Foundations in Education joins our 73 Leaders of Tomorrow in wishing you a Happy Valentine’s Day.”

“We are especially grateful to our donors who support our students and do so much to transform their lives,” said Holly Doherty-Lemoine, Foundations Director. “In the words of Mother Teresa, we thank you for the love you put in the doing—a lifelong sharing of love with others!”

Foundations in Education is a non-profit initiative created to assist the Diocese of Bridgeport’s ongoing mission to support Catholic education in Fairfield County. The primary purpose of Foundations is to raise money to support Catholic education through student scholarships, innovation and leadership grants for the professional development of elementary school teachers, and other education-based initiatives.
