Students at Chesterbrook Academy Preschools in Northern Virginia (including Alexandria, Centreville, Clifton, Fairfax, Herndon and Woodbridge) recently partnered with Chesterbrook Academy Preschools in Richmond to raise more than $3,700 for the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Challenge.

Students and their families participated in a “virtual” fundraiser to collect donations for the Salvation Army, which will use the funds raised to provide much-needed support to Virginia families and individuals who are facing hardships.

Though this initiative, students learned the importance of spreading kindness and helping those in need, school officials said.
