YAC delivered stockings filled with art supplies and games to Children's Hospital on December 19, 2013.  The stockings were a collaborative kindness project for the holidays. The art department purchased the materials and made the stockings.  Special thanks to Mrs. Megan Thompson and Mrs. Phillips Seitter.  Casady Service-Learning sponsored the decoration of the stockings by anyone interested at the Woolsey Wing Student Center.  The art club students were the first one to decorate, followed by YAC and interested UD Cyclones like seniors Christine L. and Kendall B.
Junior Sidney Jones provided the idea for a very special fundraiser for the stockings fillings.  UD Casady Cyclones donated money to select a teacher from their donations to dress as a Christmas character the last day before the break. 
Collection jars and box were placed at teachers' classrooms and front office.  The contenders were:  Miss Croce, Spanish Teacher and winner of the fundraiser as Rudolph.  A very closed second was Mr. Halpern, Math teacher, as the Grinch.  The other contenders were, Dr. Philipson, UD Principal as Frosty the Snow Man, Coach T., UD Dean of Students, as a Christmas Tree, and Dr. Lewchuk, UD Science and Math, as Scrooge.  The fundraiser was announced on Monday with the goal of raising $100.  On Thursday, by 3:45 PM, Mrs. Jenkins, from Student Billing, counted the money and $140 were collected.  Thank you teachers.
Junior Jessika G. went to Wal-Mart and purchased the wish list for the stocking provided by the Volunteer Coordinator of Children's Hospital, Mrs. Belinda Anderson. Mr. Crofton MD drama classes filled the stockings and due to inclement weather forecast, the stockings were delivered by available YAC members on Friday, December 19 after school.  Caroling on Saturday at Children's Hospital was cancelled due to incoming ice storm.
