"We look forward to this program and to Thanksgiving every year because it gives us a chance to say ‘Thank You’ to parents and to the community for their continued support."
Chester, PA (PRWEB) November 19, 2012
Approximately 600 parents of Chester Community Charter School (CCCS), the largest K-8 charter school in Pennsylvania, recently took part in the school’s 13th Annual Thanksgiving Gift Certificate Giveaway, wherein each household received a $10 gift certificate, good toward a turkey or other Thanksgiving Day fixings, at Sam & Sam Meats, a Chester-based, small business.
Students and parents were greeted by Chester C. Turkey, CCCS’ Thanksgiving mascot, as school administrators distributed gift vouchers.
Dr. David Clark, CEO, Chester Community Charter School, said, “We look forward to this program and to Thanksgiving every year because it gives us a chance to say ‘Thank You’ to parents and to the community for their continued support.” (For full video remarks from Dr. Clark, click here.)
Since its inception in 1999, the program has awarded more than 7,500 CCCS families with holiday food assistance, amounting to approximately $75,000, provided by Vahan Gureghian, founder of the school’s management company, Charter School Management, Inc., and his wife, Danielle.
