On October 29, 2020, thanks to Operation Warm and donations from The Kenneth Bankert Foundation and The Silence of Mary Home, Newberry Elementary School’s entire student body (approximately 250 children) selected a free, brand-new jacket, gloves, and a hat.
Volunteers from the Newberry Township Police Department and school district staff donated their time to work one-on-one with each child to find just the right size and style of coat.
Today was incredible and we are excited to see how this act of kindness spreads and inspires other positive actions in the school community and beyond. #WestShoreProud
- Newberry parents, if your child was absent today or participating in remote learning, the school has plans for your child to receive items next week.
- All West Shore families, this event was at Newberry, but we have additional winter coats, hats, and gloves available. Please, do not hesitate to contact your school's counselor if we can help!
