So happy to see that Victoria made it back from her home in Venezuela. Thank you to the many who have and continue to support her journey here as she starts school at WCC.
While here Victoria is not allowed to work and there is no way for her family to support her from Venezuela.To support her education, a fund has been set up through the local nonprofit Chase the Moon, where tax-deductible checks can be made to the foundation for the "Victoria Fund" and mailed to Aurora Sunrise Rotary, Box 5352, Aurora, IL 60507. For more information, call Olson at 630-701-0817 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
