Brightside Cares: Secret Santa Project & Community Donations

In the spirit of giving, this holiday season Brightside Academy chose to spread the joy across our communities by partnering with local organizations to impact our families.

We had the privilege of providing special holiday gifts to families in need in each region of the regions we serve – Ohio, New York, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
We created the Secret Santa Project to give back to our loyal families. The week of Christmas 5 families were surprised with gifts for their children from our Brightside staff. Shown to below is an Ohio family that received gifts for their three children enrolled at our Broadway Avenue location in Cleveland.

Our 685 Rogers Avenue and 683 Barbey Street locations in Brooklyn, New York collected donations for New York Cares and The New Hope Family Worship Center. Over 50 coats and toys were collected for these organizations.

Our Philadelphia 40th and Market academy partnered with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to donate toys, books and teddy bears to local families.
