West Chester Christmas Toy Drive
‘Tis The Season to Donate a Toy!
Drop off your donations by Saturday, December 3rd!
“For the sixth year in a row, WSFS Bank is honored to support the West Chester Christmas Toy Drive in West Chester,” said Shari Kruzinski, Senior Vice President of Retail Banking at WSFS Bank. “At WSFS, we take great pride in giving back to our communities. We’re excited to host toy drop-offs throughout our Pennsylvania branches and play a role in bringing holiday cheer to local children in need.” The toy collection boxes were so beautifully decorated by Elementary School students from several West Chester Area School District Schools.
Holiday Toy Drive Breakfast
Each December the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce hosts their holiday toy drive breakfast. New, unwrapped items donated by Chamber members and the community are presented to non-profit organizations who work directly with families in our community.
On Wednesday, December 7, 2016 at 7:45 AM the annual Holiday Toy Drive Breakfast will take place at Saint Agnes School, located at 233 West Gay Street in West Chester. In lieu of payment please bring a toy for donation. During our morning we will present the recipients with their toys!
