December 2019 Community Partners of the Month: Willoughby-Eastlake School of Innovation

The Cleveland Police Foundation proudly announces that the recipient of our Community Partner of the Month Award for December 2019 is the Willoughby-Eastlake School of Innovation!

For the last nine years, the Willoughby-Eastlake School of Innovation has held a Christmas stocking drive for the Cleveland Police Second District Children’s Christmas Party!

Third grade teacher Cherise Goodrich established and organized this drive from the get-go! It was started with 30 third-graders at Royalview Elementary School and has now snowballed into donations from the entire W-E School of Innovation!

This year over 300 stockings stuffed with toys, candy, and goodies will be given out to kids from struggling families. Even Santa made an appearance at the Christmas stocking drive to celebrate the Christmas spirit and to thank these wonderful students, families, and staff for showing everyone the true meaning of Christmas!!

A big thank you and Merry Christmas to the Willoughby-Eastlake School of Innovation!!

It is because of this generosity in helping the kids of the Cleveland community that the Cleveland Police Foundation is honored to name the Willoughby-Eastlake School of Innovation as its Community Partner of the Month for December 2019.
