Chester, Pennsylvania, UNITED STATES

Chester, PA, Dec. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At 9 a.m., on Wednesday, December 20, 2017, Santa Claus will hand-deliver gifts to students, in grades kindergarten through first, at Chester Community Charter School (CCCS), as part of the school’s annual “Santa Brigade.” The event will take place at CCCS’s East campus, 225 E. 5th Street, in Chester, PA.

The Gureghian Foundation, founded by Vahan Gureghian, CEO of CSMI, the school’s management company, and his wife, Danielle, CSMI’s General Counsel, donated the funds that purchased this year’s gifts.
