Just before our students departed for a much-needed holiday break, Buffalo Promise Neighborhood hosted a Winter Bash at our Westminster Community Charter School. Families were able to sit down and enjoy a hot meal generously donated by West Herr Automotive and lovingly prepared by 516 Connections. It was a joy to see the smiles on children’s faces as they interacted with Blue from Blue’s Clues and our very own Elf on the Shelf. Face painting by Blasian Doll and family portraits by Eugene’s Photography rounded out the evening festivities.
Once again, this year, thanks to generous donors like West Herr Automotive, Wegmans Food Markets, Highmark Blue Cross/Blue Shield, board members, M&T volunteers as well as Westminster and BPN staff, 100+ families from Westminster Community Charter School received a holiday gift bag full of fun activities including games and puzzles sure to create long lasting holiday memories.
Additionally, we would like to recognize the M&T Credit and Audit divisions who each adopted a family in need from Westminster Community Charter School again this holiday season. Thanks to their employees, these families received wished for items allowing them to celebrate the season in a way that may have been impossible without their support. We continue to be amazed at the generosity and support from these groups year after year.
We hope you continue to be inspired by our shared stories and as we embark on another New Year, it bears repeating - we are always looking forward, building upon our yesterdays to create brighter todays and tomorrows. It’s a commitment we share with our students and their families.
