What is Chickering CARES?

Chickering CARES aims to create awareness around the needs in our community by presenting students with opportunities to contribute and make a difference! Community service initiatives teach about direct service, indirect service, advocacy and research, all of which foster kindness, generosity, and understanding of those around us! Past projects have included organizing a Food Drive for A Place to Turn, creating a Buddy Bench for the Chickering playground, building birthday boxes for children whose families cannot afford birthday parties, visiting with seniors from Dover’s Council on Aging, and more. Students develop philanthropic leadership skills as well as an understanding as to how they can become a catalyst for change through hands-on volunteerism and charitable giving. TOGETHER, we CAN make a difference
