Established in 2004, the Williamsburg Charter High School (WCHS) is located in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn and provides low income high school students from North Brooklyn with a better education than they would in a typical public high school setting.
As a community charter high school, WCHS wants to ensure that we are taking the word “community” to heart, and thus this year, we are initiating an annual toy drive and holiday party for local children and families in need.
Each family will receive 1 gift per child, enjoy music and entertainment, and snack on holiday treats. We hope to provide an annual holiday experience that will benefit our community as a whole.
We hope that this event becomes a staple in the community which will build relationships with families and local stakeholders, bring students and WCHS staff together towards a greater good, and create a line of communication and connection with our school and community.
If you have any questions or will like to donate toys please feel free to contact me at AHelliger@thewcs.org
