Devon Prep’s Christian Action Program (CAP) collected nearly 100 new and gently used children’s Easter outfits for Partners in Outreach Operation Easter Outfit. Among the donations were frilly dresses, summer dresses, complete suits with ties and vests, shorts and polo shirt combinations, and several pairs of shoes.
All the donations were delivered to the Day Room at St. Agnes Church in West Chester and the Coatesville Community, Youth & Women’s Alliance (CYWA).
Partners in Outreach works to foster relationships, facilitate partnerships and service others with love, integrity and humility.
More than 50 Devon Prep students in grades six through 12 participate in CAP, which provides them with the opportunity to help those less fortunate.
In addition to collecting Easter outfits, the students involved in CAP also run a Thanksgiving food drive, sponsor fundraisers for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, collect school supplies for inner-city students in need and participate in area fundraisers.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
