CHESTER – Students, families and staff from Primrose School at Ironbridge Corner demonstrated their commitment to giving back recently by raising $3,690 for local and national charities through a Spring Fling event held April 28.
The funds raised will be split between Muscular Dystrophy Association and the Primrose Children’s Foundation, the not-for-profit organization that supports national charitable partners.
“At Primrose, we’re committed to teaching our students about helping others and giving without expectation,” said Georgia Wiley, owner of Primrose School. “Our annual Spring Fling event is one way we do this. Not only are we able to give back to our wonderful community, but it also gives local families an opportunity to come together in a fun way.”
Funding raised for the Primrose Children’s Foundation will be used to support Save the Children, the world’s top independent charity for children in need and national partner of Primrose Schools. The organization has robust and impactful programs in the United States, such as child sponsorship and emergency preparedness, that provide children living in poverty with the skills and resources they need to succeed in school and in life.
