    West’s Student Senate Brings You Charity Week

    Our charity this year is the Children’s Therapy Center of the Quad Cities.  Over the years, thousands of individuals and their families have benefited from CTC’s services—regardless of their ability to pay for the services. Now, with a focus on young children, the Children’s Therapy Center is a major service provider for children and families throughout Western Illinois and Southeastern Iowa. It is a great privilege and responsibility to help children with developmental disabilities achieve their highest level of independence.  Watch the video and show your Falcon Spirit by supporting our activities to raise money for the CTC—Zumba, Staff vs Student Basketball, Dodge Ball, Spirit Week, and THE VARIETY SHOW.  View the video.
