In 2006, while searching for a local non-profit that accepted donated books, Chris discovered LVGH. Having an IT background and a passion for positively impacting his hometown of Hartford, Chris took an interest in our computer lab. For over 10 years, Chris has been a daily fixture helping students develop their digital literacy skills. Along with being a dedicated volunteer, Chris served on the Board of Directors from 2007-2014, making him a highly engaged donor. Through his time and financial contributions to LVGH, Chris has helped countless students over the years. “We should never be satisfied, we should strive to continuously grow and serve more people. Cities like Hartford are not always financially able to deliver every service its residents need, and if you believe in investing in the future, it has to be done by the community. That is why I give to organizations like LVGH
