Mercy Receives Grant from Casey's
Mercy High School is a 2021 Casey’s Cash for Classrooms grant recipient. The school will receive $5,000 to support student mental health services by enhancing technology and equipment to provide services virtually. With the advent of COVID-19, and the challenges the pandemic presents, the need for these services has increased.
“We are so grateful to receive a Cash for Classrooms grant and are excited to complete this important project that will improve our students’ ability to address and overcome mental health challenges,” said Nate Driml, Vice President for Advancement at Mercy.
“The past year has been unlike any other for schools, and our Cash for Classrooms grants will help schools through this difficult time as well as to improve the learning environment for the future. Casey’s is here for good and that means supporting students, teachers and families in our local communities,” said Katie Petru, Director of Community at Casey’s.
The project, which involves outfitting designated session spaces with technology and equipment, should be completed by the spring.
