Concord Academy Students Conduct Thanksgiving Appeal for Critically Ill

This post is driven by my role as a co-advisor to the Concord Academy Students in Action (CASA), a student club for community service. Since the beginning of last month, CASA has been engaged in a Thanksgiving appeal called “Pie in the Sky” to benefit the critically ill and homebound in the Boston area.

Thus far students and parents at Concord Academy have made purchases from Community Servings, the non-profit, food and nutrition program providing services throughout Massachusetts to individuals and families living with critical and chronic illnesses. Caroline Stotz, a sophomore at the Academy has enabled online purchases thereby making the appeal open to all who feel moved to contribute to this cause.

CASA is still selling pies for Pie in the Sky through the first few weeks of November. You can purchase pies here, then pick up your pie before Thanksgiving to make a personal delivery to a sick neighbor or have the pie delivered, on your behalf, to a Community Servings client. Feel free to spread the word!
