Casady's Cans Do Canned Food Drive has been a fantastic success this week with all divisions participating in Casady's Students Against Hunger. Freshmen led this community service project with help from the Upper Division and Youth Active in the Community (YAC) club members. The can and cash donation count at the end of the day Friday was equal to 14,014.5 cans of food. Donations are made up of canned food as well as cash, where $1.00 equals six cans. Breaking it down, Casady families donated 6,376 cans of food and $1,037. Mrs. Clay reported the results from each of the divisions:
  • Primary Division: 456
  • Lower Division: 6.531.5; Fourth Grade brought the most cans
  • Middle Division: 1,609; Woolsey House brought the most cans
  • Upper Division: 5,418; Juniors were the overall winner
View photos from the week and detailed results of Casady's 2015 Students Against Hunger Canned Food Drive at Upper Division students walked with the Primary Division students with wagons filled with cans to deliver them to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma truck that visited the School.

To close hunger awareness week, there is another opportunity to volunteer at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma on Saturday, Oct. 31 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Volunteers may register on the Food Bank Volunteer website and are asked to bring their permission slips with them. Parents are also welcome in this side-by-side community service activity. Mrs. Clay will be on site with the Casady students.
