In an effort organized by the building’s student council, Cherokee Street Elementary School students showcased their literacy skills as they put pen to paper and took part in a successful letter-writing campaign. The initiative was coordinated as part of Macy’s Believe program benefiting Make-A-Wish.

“Macy’s will donate $1 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation for each letter written by the students,” said Mrs. Kenna. “Cherokee students are expected to exceed last year’s total of 475 letters this year!” 

As part of the program, Macy’s has committed to donating up to $1 million to the foundation. The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions, and seeks to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
