Devon Prep’s Christian Action Program collected more than 3500 food items during their Harvest Tide Food Drive for St. Elizabeth’s Project H.O.M.E. Food Cupboard in North Philadelphia. All the food, which was blessed by Devon Prep Headmaster Rev. Francisco Aisa Shea, Sch.P., during the school’s annual Thanksgiving Mass, was delivered to the food cupboard on Tuesday, just in time for the holiday.
Several of the food cupboard volunteers were on hand to accept the donations of canned vegetables, soups, tomato sauce tuna fish, jars of apple sauce, peanut butter and jams, and boxes of pasta, stuffing, rice, mashed potatoes and more from CAP members. Through CAP Devon Prep has had a long standing connection to St. Elizabeth’s Community Center. Each year CAP conducts food, clothing and school supplies drives that benefit the Center.
Devon Prep’s Christian Action Program is a student-run organization dedicated to improving the surrounding community through ongoing acts of service. One of the most active programs at Devon Prep, CAP consists of students from grades six to twelve. Annual events include the School Supplies Drive, “Up For A Cause” benefitting St. Jude Childrens’ Research Hospital, Thanksgiving Food Drive, Christmas Giving Tree benefitting Chester County shelters, hosting a Red Cross Blood Drive and Operation Easter Outfit.
