We are please to announce that the FCFT has decided to become a sponsor of Ellie’s Hats. Jay Coakley met Steve Greenburg, the President of the FCFT (Fairfax County Federation of Teachers), at a Fairfax County School Board meeting, this September. After learning about Ellie’s Hats Steve told Jay that he wanted to support Ellie’s Hats mission by making a monetary donation to help Ellie’s Hats with their mission to support families that have a child battling cancer. With the help from the donation from FCFT Ellie’s Hats will be purchasing new ipad’s for the Pediatric Specialists of Virginia. psvcare.org.
