Sister School Program

Annual Sister School Turkey Drive!

Each year, Wilchester families donate Thanksgiving turkeys to our wonderful sister school, Spring Shadows Elementary.  Last year we donated 60 turkeys – let’s beat that this year!

Volunteers will be in the carpool lane collecting FROZEN turkeys on the morning of Friday, November 22nd.  Please consider donating.

Additionally, our Sister School, Spring Shadows Elementary, has ongoing needs for the Blessing in a Backpack program. Blessings in a Backpack is a weekend food program for children at risk of going hungry. Wilchester helps by collecting food donations each month and by delivering bags to students at Spring Shadows every Friday.

November’s food focus item is Canned Chili with Meat (15 oz. can).

A huge THANK YOU to WCE for donating 92 jackets, 77 packs of underwear, and 17 packs of socks to Spring Shadows Elementary students!

For additional information regarding our Sister School program, please contact our 2019-20 chairs:
