The spirit of the holiday season blessed the students of Westwind Elementary Thursday morning thanks to a generous donation from South Plains Electric Cooperative who provided a new pair of shoes to all 669 students at Westwind just in time for the holidays.
The shoe donation courtesy of SPEC comes after the Westwind Parent Teacher Association met their membership goal of 500 members for the school year. SPEC agreed to buy shoes for every Westwind student if the goal was met. The donation guarantees the children are well equipped with a new pair of shoes just in time for the holiday break.
With more than 500 members, Westwind PTA hit a new record number of parent involvement for a school year.
“Westwind Elementary is extremely grateful for the shoe donations from South Plains Electric Cooperative,” says Todd Newberry, Westwind principal. “Westwind’s PTA has worked tirelessly to make our membership goal, and South Plains Electric Cooperative has delivered on its commitment to the community. We are so very appreciative for both entities and their support of our campus and students.”
This is the second consecutive year Westwind PTA and SPEC have joined forces to benefit the students of Westwind. Last year, Westwind PTA met a membership goal of more than 300 members, and SPEC rewarded the students with a scarf and pair of gloves.
