On Wednesday, April 1, 2015, Hoffman Toyota visited the Maria C. Sanchez Elementary School in Hartford, CT to present a $1,000 donation for the purchase of new sneakers, socks and uniform pants for children in need. Partnering with the school to address the needs of children in the Hartford community, eligible students will be given the new shoes so they can focus on their studies rather than worry about their well-being. These shoes and other items have a greater and long-lasting effect of improving the self-esteem of the children — this is what truly matters. It is an honor for Hoffman Toyota to contribute to the betterment of the lives of children in the community and encourage them to focus on their education and futures!
Maria C. Sanchez (1926-1989) is known for her activism in the community and educational reform. In honor of her memory, the Maria C. Sanchez Elementary School was dedicated in 1991.
