Santa Claus hand-delivered nearly 2,000 gifts to scholars at Chester Community Charter School, Camden Communiy Charter School, and Atlantic City Community Charter School at the annual Santa Brigade celebrations on December 18, December 22, and December 23.
The toys and gifts were provided by The Gureghian Foundation, which is led by Vahan Gureghian, CEO of CSMI, the school’s management company, and his wife, Danielle. This year, the contribution value was approximately $26,500.
Mr. and Mrs. Gureghian have donated nearly $470,000 to Santa Brigade gifts for Chester, Camden, and Atlantic City students since the program’s inception in 1998.
The Santa Brigade program is currently in its 16th year, and was established as an initiative to ensure that each student would feel included, and would receive a gift for the holiday, regardless of their family’s financial standing.
