DOWNINGTOWN — The holidays were a little brighter for Chester County families thanks to the students and staff from all three Chester County Intermediate Unit (CCIU) Technical College High School (TCHS) campuses, the Child and Career Development Center (CCDC) and the Holiday Hope Chest program.

The Holiday Hope Chest is a charity event that provides a free day of shopping for Chester County residents who are in need. The event was held at each of the following four locations: TCHS Brandywine, TCHS Pennock’s Bridge, TCHS Pickering and the CCDC. More than 550 families benefited from the event and the value of all donated goods and money raised totaled over $50,000.

Throughout the month of December, hundreds of CCIU volunteers devoted their time to set up the event, assist the shoppers and wrap presents for the families. Students made up most of the volunteers and played a significant role in fundraising, bringing in donations and working the event to make sure it ran smoothly and was enjoyable for participating families.
