“Once again we’d like to express our sincerest gratitude to Exelon Generation for supporting our families through their winter coat donations,” said Wilson Principal, Purnima DeMorais. “For the past decade our students have benefited from this generous act of giving and while we’re grateful to be thought of year after year, we’re especially thankful this year during such challenging times. We truly appreciate this incredible partnership and support of our community!”
