The BORO Program Needs your Support.

Hello WYSA families and supporters!! Thank you for your interest in investing in the BORO Sugar Shack to give all Westborough students the opportunity to continue learning and growing right here at home!

BORO Background:
The Westborough Public Schools recently revamped its post-high school transition program and opened the BORO (Bridging Over to Right Opportunities) across the street from Westborough House of Pizza. The BORO program is an innovative program to help students with complex learning needs and special abilities, aged 18-22, gain real-world job skills right in their home community. In fact, the program is so innovative and exciting that it’s expected to be used as a model for other school districts in the future! The final stage of the BORO program, the BORO Sugar Shack, will be opening shortly.

The BORO Sugar Shack, a candy and gift store, will be an on-site learning lab for students to learn job-related skills in an authentic business setting. Since the Sugar Shack is located in the heart of downtown Westborough, the entire Westborough community will be able to participate in — and enjoy — this unique retail experience. Your generous financial donation will help set up the store, including buying the first batch of products to sell and installing POS (point of sale) systems, digital signage and more. All subsequent store purchases will cycle back to support the store and the BORO program to help it succeed in our town.

All donations to the BORO project through this website (WETF is a registered 501C3) are tax deductible. Please consult your tax adviser for specific advice. At the end of your transaction you will be presented with a receipt that reflects our 501 C3 Tax ID.
