Chester Community Charter School (CCCS) students, staff and administrators, through its “Loose Change for Change” program, has collected $3,420 for donation to the American Red Cross – Chester-Wallingford Chapter, in an effort to give back to those affected by the earthquake in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti on January 12, 2010.
The collection initiative, which ran for a total of 10 days, encouraged members of the CCCS family to donate their loose pocket change to assist in providing relief efforts, including the purchase of food, dry goods, water, and other necessities for the people of Haiti.
Tienne Nael, a sixth-grade student at CCCS, who collected and donated $100, the single-highest donation of all the students, will be in attendance to present the check.
