United Way Quote: “Chester Charter School for the Arts is such a needed resource in the Chester community, not only for the quality of education it provides, but also for its focus on and dedication to community outreach. United Way is fortunate to have this opportunity to partner with Chester Water Authority and CCSA today in giving out these winter accessories. Together, we have witnessed the great things that are happening at CCSA and are grateful to have the opportunity to spread warmth throughout our community.” – Chan-Elle Vassell, Development Officer at United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey
Student quotes: “We can’t wait to wear our warm hats, gloves and scarves to build snowmen, make snow angels and snow igloos! We feel special for getting these gifts! Thank you!” (general quote echoed by many of our students this morning)
 
“My scarf is fluffy and warm,” says Nyah, a first grader in Ms. Warburton’s class at CCSA.
“I like the color blue,” says Ramee, a first grader in Ms. Warburton’s class at CCSA, as he chooses a pair of blue and black gloves.
“I feel special because they let us have this gift and it’s not even my birthday!” says Karmoni, a first grader in Ms. Warburton’s class at CCSA.
“These hats, gloves and scarf are so nice!” says Rayna, a first grader in Ms. Warburton’s class at CCSA.
Maurice Eldridge, Vice President, CCSA Board of Trustees shared: “It was wonderful to see the smiles on the faces of the children as they made their selections matched by the smiles on the faces of our visiting donors. Happiness lies in what you do for others! I love seeing this mantra of mine in action.”
