As a wonderful example of our inclusive, nurturing community, today students, parents, and faculty all came together in honor of #GivingTuesday. Inspired by the global event, which encourages giving back during the holiday season, the Windward community partnered with the Westside Children's Center in a toy drive geared to children of all ages. Volunteers arrived early, and before the first bell rang the donation table was already overflowing with toys, games, and other generous gifts.
The donations kept pouring in up through Nutrition, where students returned to the Bridge to take part in Windward's #UNselfie station. Created as a way to share why they support the causes they care about, this visual forum resulted in many touching declarations.
A huge thank you goes out to all of our students, parents and volunteers for making this year’s event such a complete, inspiring success!
