Michelle Teixeira Helps Students Shine

Making a Difference for Sudents at St. Francis Xavier School in Acushnet, Mass.

Michelle Teixeira juggles the chaos of being a working mother and still finds time to volunteer at St. Francis Xavier School in Acushnet, Mass.  She has been a part of the school’s Parent Teacher Organization for the last three years and recently served as Chair of the Events Committee where she helped to plan the Spring Gala Fundraiser and raised over $30,000. 

Michelle Russo, Principal of St. Francis Xavier School, says that “Michelle has been an absolutely invaluable volunteer and wonderful asset to our school. Her drive and motivation was both contagious and inspiring, as she stepped forward to chair one of the most successful fundraisers our school has ever seen.  The fundraising efforts will have a direct and positive impact on our school and its students.  Future improvements to our school include updated science materials and playground equipment. Thank you Michelle Teixeira, and thank you Verizon for investing in our children and the future by supporting education.”

Because Michelle volunteers at least 50 hours annually with St. Francis, the Verizon Foundation donates $750 to the organization as part of the Verizon Volunteers Program.
