CharterNation's Holiday Tradition: Giving Back

CharterNation's Holiday Tradition: Giving Back

By: California Charter Schools Association

Charter public schools in our state have a wonderful holiday tradition going on: giving back to the families and communities they serve.

It’s also warmly like last year, when the charter school community rolled up its sleeves to bring an abundance of cheer, generosity, and hope to students and families hit hard by the pandemic.
