  • Westrum Development Company along with other local developers and The Branch Family, LLC hosted a toy and clothing drive and outdoor distribution event for children from the local Robert Morris School in Brewerytown in December

    Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the annual event was held at The Plaza@31Brewerytown. Approximately 50 children accompanied by parents or grandparents were able to walk away with 3 or 4 gifts, a new or gently used coat, hat, gloves or scarves and a lap desk. In total, Westrum purchased about 40 gifts and 40 lap desks. We also collected about 50 gifts in total from The Hub, The Pointe, 1200 Washington and the corporate office. Everyone was so happy and appreciative.
