|Special Affiliations or Roles:|
In addition to CASP’s contributions to the OSPA Scholarship, CASP continues to offer its members numerous opportunities to participate in group service projects. For several years, our members have walked as a team for NAMIWalk Greater Cleveland. Together we have raised thousands of dollars for this organization, which supports people with mental illness. We also regularly have groups of 10-12 members volunteer for the Cleveland Food Bank for various projects, including the School Backpack Program. CASP also supports the Providence House, a crisis nursery offering emergency shelter and care for children at risk for abuse or neglect, by donating items and money, as well as participating in a “Done in a Day Project” in the spring. This past year a team of about 15 CASP members spent a morning sorting and labeling clothes for the center. We are very proud of the many community service projects that our members participate in throughout the year!
The CASP Executive Board meets four times per year. Committee Chairs/CASP Reps to OSPA are invited to attend, as are any other CASP members.
Meetings for the 2013-2014 school year will occur at 4:15 pm at the ESC of Cuyahoga County at 5811 Canal Rd., Valley View, OH 44125.
