Turnover Shop Donates $50,000 to Wilton Public School PTAs
Dr. Kevin Smith announced a bit of GOOD news during Thursday’s (Dec. 16) Board of Education meeting — he thanked the Turnover Shop, which will be donating $50,000 to the PTAs of the Wilton Public School. “[It] is really remarkable. That donation is incredibly generous and really goes right back to our students in our program through the PTAs. So, thank you to the Turnover Shop and thank you to our PTAs for working with our schools to enrich our programs.
Congratulations, Will Haskell!
