Lenn Libby has produced a memorial t-shirt that he hopes will raise funds for the victims’ families. The $10 shirts are available at his business, Pro Line Sports and Design, 171 Bruce Avenue in Stratford. Walk-in business is brisk, he said, though the only advertising he has done is on his Facebook page.
“This has really exploded, as my Facebook friends have shared it. I’ve got bulk orders from organizations like fire departments and more than 400 (shirts) through individual sales,” said Libby, who has a 2 1/2 year old grandson. “Obviously this whole thing has hit me hard,” he said.
Libby said he plans to donate all of the proceeds from the shirts to funds supporting the victims and may contribute to a memorial for teacher Vicki Soto.
Richard Nucifora of Milford said his friend’s generosity doesn’t surprise him. “He started the day after it happened. It’s a beautiful shirt and it should help the victims.”
