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.
