Casady School's Service Day

Casady School's Service Day


The Upper Division students and faculty embarked upon four service adventures Wednesday, March 27. For the rest of the day, the campus was abuzz with great stories and positivity about these shared service experiences. Each grade level was assigned to a nonprofit in Oklahoma City and tasked with a variety of jobs.

·  The Freshmen Class packed 350 bags of hygiene items for the Homeless Alliance. After a brief tour of the facilities, students greeted day shelter residents and passed out the bags. Students gained insights and a fresh perspective about the homeless population, wellness, and mental health issues. Compassion was sparked in the hearts of everyone who visited and interacted with the residents.

·  The Sophomore Class served at Jesus House where they organized food pantry items, cleaned, planted flowers, and beautified the grounds. People came to the center for basic needs. Groceries, dog food, and clothing were distributed, but the 

grateful smiles expressed more than words could convey. Those that came for help left with a measure of hope, too.

·  The Junior Class worked at the Northeast Community and Cultural Center. Students washed dishes and helped with preparations for lunch. Additionally, students cleaned out storage units and beautified the grounds. The property was much improved after their hard work and team effort.

·  The Senior Class laid sod for homes at Legacy Estates, a Habitat for Humanity community. Cyclones sweat together, laughed together, and felt the satisfaction of a job well done and a morning well spent.

The common thread of all the service projects was the Casady students' energy and willingness to serve. The Casady Community offers a wide range of learning experiences, and giving back to others is one more opportunity for personal growth. This service project will be a cherished memory for many for years to come.
