In Memoriam

A generous donation from the Estate of Vicky Friedman will fund the distribution of over 3,000 dictionaries to Oakland third graders. This distribution began in the 2019-2020 academic year. Volunteering For Oakland continues to honor Vicky, Oakland native, long-time Volunteering For Oakland board member, and enthusiastic Dictionary Day presenter for many years. A Vicky Friedman Memorial bookmark was provided to third-grade students with their dictionaries in the 2019-2020 academic year to honor her leadership, passion, and generosity.
