Giving a holiday gift is a great way to bring a smile to a child’s face. Imagine all the smiles then from the Aurora Public Schools students who recently received $15,000 in gifts from Amazon! Amazon made the donation to 50 students and their families who are served by the APS Welcome Center. The Welcome Center assists APS refugee and immigrant families in becoming more familiar with the APS system.
For many of the students who received gifts, this is the first holiday season they have spent in the United States. Each family was able to fill up a box with toys, technology and some essential items for the home. Amazon also made a $5,000 monetary donation to the Welcome Center.
