BACK TO SCHOOL DRIVE
Children served by CASA are often removed from their homes without any of their belongings. Not only do they leave behind everything they've known, they often times also leave behind their school and their school supplies. We collect these items year round.
CASA provides advocates with bags full of items that help them "break the ice" with their CASA kids and to assist with giving them a "safe" and oftentimes fun way to share how they are feeling during this difficult time in their lives. A list of items can be obtained by contacting the office.
NO MORE GARBAGE BAGS
CASA believes that no child should have their belongings thrown in garbage bags when they are moved. It is our goal to ensure children are provided with nice duffle bags with a pillow, blanket, hygiene items, a flashlight, and a journal.
BASIC NEEDS DRIVE
As children enter care, they often have great need in which a caregiver may need immediate assistance to meet that need. CASA accepts donations of gently used or new clothing items in all sizes, toys, bedding, diapers, wipes, hygiene items, etc.
All children should be reminded that they are special and their birthday is no exception. CASA collects birthday boxes with cake mix, icing, candles, a birthday card, a little gift, and anything else you may want to throw in to make a birthday extra special. It is not uncommon to meet a child that has never had a birthday party. We want to change that!
During the Christmas season, CASA works to provide gifts for our CASA kids. Items for children ages 0-18 are welcomed & appreciated. If you would like to provide for a child during the holiday season, CASA can provide you with information for shopping for a specific child.
