Manchester Students Collect 1,000 Santa Letters

Manchester Students Help Ava’s Voice Collect 1,000 Santa Letters for Make-A-Wish

Manchester students helped the Ava’s Voice organization collect over 1,000 letters to Santa to benefit Make-a-Wish. Macy's will donate $1 for every letter to Make-A-Wish, up to $1 million, to grant life-changing wishes for critically ill children all across the country.

Ava’s Voice supports individuals and families with Usher Syndrome, one of the leading causes of deaf-blindness. Ava is a student at Manchester Township Middle School. Her childhood friend AJ has been collecting letters for Make-A-Wish New Jersey for several years. Since Ava moved to Manchester she has supported this event by collecting as many letters as she could to help her buddy. This year, with the support of the MTMS Mustangs Student Council and her Manchester Township, NJ School District community, they collected over 1,000 letters to help AJ reach his highest collection total of over 211,000 letters this year.

The letters were delivered by Ava and some friends from MTMS at the AJ’s BELIEVE letter drop event at Macy’s in East Brunswick on December 6.
