Food Drive 2015 first steps

Casady Cans Do

Students Against Hunger Food Drive

October 26-October 30

BE A HUNGER HERO


Help the Casady YAC (Youth Active in the Community) take a bite out of Oklahoma hunger.  Drop cans or monetary donations by the Primary, Lower, Middle Division offices and the Upper Division Student Center during early morning carpool from 10/26 to 10/30, 2015.


Bring in-date canned donations to the Lower Division front office.  Most needed items include: canned meat, canned vegetables, canned fruit, peanut butter, and beans and rice.

$1 donated to the Food Bank = 5 meals for hungry Oklahomas. Make checks payable to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.  Write Casady School Food Drive on the memo for the gift to count towards our drive.
