Dear Friend,

The bustle of the holiday season is upon us, but we wanted to take a few moments to wish you all the best and thank each of you for continuing to support the Q. Walter Peabody Foundation. We are truly lucky to receive so many gifts from you not just during this special time, but year round. And we should all feel proud of the gifts we, in turn, get to bestow upon the children of our communities.

We were thrilled to award the 2017 Zachary Weston Memorial Scholarship to Platt High School's valedictorian - Shaharia Ferdus. Shaharia impressed us with her ambition, intelligence, fortitude, and - above all - her desire to use her talents to help others. Planning to attend UCONN and then go on to medical school, Shaharia wants to help educate and provide medical care to those who need it most.

And our Spring Fine Arts Grant winner, Tracy Becker, is helping to spread joy through puppetry. Tracy, a senior at Platt High School, impressed us with her puppeteering skills and passion for using her art to promote inclusion and acceptance. We will be awarding additional Peabody Fine Arts Grants in January so stay tuned for more inspiring stories of young artists in our community.

Whether you donate, attend one of our events, or promote us among members of the community, you are making a difference.

On behalf of the Foundation, I wish you happy and healthy holidays.

Luciano Racco
