YAC Food Drive 2014
A Note from Sara Shobeiri
Freshman YAC Chair

Students Against Hunger, "Casady Cans Due," is asking for the Casady Community's help to succeed. 

The Upper Division's Youth in Action in the Community (YAC) looked at the statistics and reports that it is not uncommon for people who live in our city to be struggling with hunger. Oklahoma is among the 10 hungriest in the nation. The Regional Food Bank feeds 110,000 hungry Oklahomans every week. If every Casady student brings a mere six cans of food a day, we will collect more than 26,000 cans. Can you imagine what we CAN do? I CAN.

The most needed non-perishable food donations are canned meats, soups, sauces, canned beans, brown rice, pasta, canned fruits and vegetables, and peanut butter. Also $1 can provide up to five meals. Make checks payable to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, Casady Food Drive. 

Collection boxes will be clearly present and easily accessible in each division from Friday, Oct. 31, to Friday Nov. 7. 

Together, we CAN set the new Casady standard.
