Thank you to our New Providence Police Department and our AWR community for partnering in the NPPD Toys for Tots program as a part of AWR’s “Week of Giving” Campaign. Special thanks to Mike Delia, NPPD School Resource Officer (and our NPPD for hosting a successful Toys for Tots collection for the community), AWR PTA President Molly Stassfurth, and the “Week of Giving” chairs Cathy Beyer Killian and Rebecca Nichols. Two large bins were filled with presents for children in need, as part of the “Week of Giving” at AWR. It is so wonderful to see these heartwarming community partnerships engaging our students in meaningful ways of helping others and giving back to the community. Thank you to all who organized, supported, donated, and participated. We are STRONGER TOGETHER! Pioneer Spirit at its finest! (Photo and information posted with permission)
Stay safe, keep well, and be strong. Enjoy the weekend! Pioneer Strong!
