During the week of February 10-14, WSGD schools participated in the "Our Community Cares" initiative. Student leadership groups at all four schools partnered with WUHS, the Chamber of Commerce, and other community agencies to collect clothing and other essentials. These items will be used to help local families through family resource rooms at each WGSD school and through donations to Love Inc.
