What have you done for someone else today?
Community service is intrinsic to the Chase experience. Just look at what Chase kids did in the month of December:
The entire Lower School visited Ben’s Bells in Bethel to learn about the power of kindness and made “Kindness Coins” to spread throughout their own communities, and donated over 100 unwrapped toys to Toys for Tots.
Middle schoolers created sock snowmen to give to Carolyn’s Place, St. Vincent de Paul Mission, Rose Hope Animal Rescue and Brass City Rescue Alliance in Waterbury.
A group of ten Chase seniors donated their time to serve food at the Breakfast with Santa at the Giamatti Regional Little League Training Complex in Bristol, raising funds for the Secret Santa Society Bristol.
The senior class took shifts ringing bells for the Waterbury Salvation Army at the Watertown Stop & Shop.
As part of their constant effort to help those within the Greater Waterbury community, about a dozen Chase kids in our 'Life is Delicious' club teamed up with Flik Independent School Dining and Flikisd: Chase Collegiate staff to prepare meals for St. Vincent DePaul Mission of Waterbury last week.
A few times every semester, Life is Delicious prepares and serves various types of meals downtown, supervised by Upper School Spanish teacher Señora Croes. Chase kid Jaden Faunce ’18 has spent several afternoons with Life is Delicious. “I love [serving there] because you get to enjoy giving to the homeless, and they’re so grateful for all that we do.”
