His daughter Leslie shares:

“It was my father’s wish to have donations sent to build textbooks for the blind in lieu of flowers upon his death. He was an avid reader and desired to help the blind be able to enjoy books as well. You will receive many donations in honor of Robert Propoggio and we hope it will help many. “

The Propoggio family has created a legacy of reading for people with learning differences in honor of their father. On behalf of the over 250,000 students served by Learning Ally – thank you!
