Chase Kid Community Service Chronicles
With the new year in full swing and the Spring semester underway, we finally have a moment to reflect on all of the ways Chase Kids spread kindness during the holidays through service in the Greater Waterbury area.
Lower Schoolers traveled to Ben’s Bells, a non-profit organization in Bethel, and created “Kindness Coins” that are spread throughout the country in an effort to promote acts of kindness. The Lower School Student Council also coordinated a toy drive for Toys for Tots, donating over 100 gifts to those in need.
Our Middle School Chase Kids were also busy finding ways to brighten the season for those less fortunate, leading a supply drive to stock local shelters and crafting sock snowmen to cheer up patrons of Carolyn’s Place, St. Vincent de Paul Mission, and Brass City Rescue Alliance in Waterbury.
It seemed as though the Upper School was branching out into the community on a daily basis. Student-led clubs and groups as well as sport teams and even academic classes all worked to create and coordinate meaningful outreach projects. 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 of Bristol, a group started by alumnus Josh Kampf ’97 during his time in the Upper School. Additionally, Upper Schoolers traveled to a local grocery store to ring bells and raise funds for The Salvation Army and coordinated drives of their own to benefit local shelters and groups.
While the Chase Community is incredibly proud of the acts of service our students completed over the holiday season, we are even more proud of the work they continue to do throughout the year. Student and Faculty-led clubs across all divisions run fundraisers and drives throughout the semester that help connect Chase Kids to the Greater Waterbury Area and the myriad foundations and charities in the area. Below, you will find photos of our Life Is Delicious club, which meets after school to prepare fresh, nutritious meals that are then delivered to local shelters.
