Adopt A Child's Holiday Wish

Each year, CASA works to provide holiday gifts to each child the organization serves. This could not happen however, without your help! 

Various organizations, schools, community groups, businesses and individuals step up to grant the wish of a child in foster care. 

There are 4 ways to help grant some winter wishes in 2014!

  1.  Host a Drive- In an effort to streamline the process for our staff and to meet the most urgent needs of our children, we're requesting that any winter drives focus on collecting new winter wear (coats, gloves, hats, scarves), children's art supplies (construction paper, crayons, paints, arts and crafts kits, activity books), and games and toys for all ages. Toys and clothing items must be new. 
  2. Register to sponsor an individual child.- Chose a child off the "Holiday Wish List" and purchase the item(s) requested. Financial donations can also be made and designated to cover a specific child's request. Our staff will then use your contribution to purchase the item requested. The list of outstanding wishes can be found here- 2014 Holiday WIsh List
  3. Donate Gift Cards- Toy, clothing, entertainment or food gift cards can be in any amount to any store. These are very popular gifts for our teenagers that are in foster care. Suggestions include venues such as movie theaters, fast food, Walmart, Target, Kohl's, Super Supermarket, ShopRite, A&P,  Willowbrook Mall stores, Amazon, Applebees, TGIFriday's, Marshall's, Modell's, etc)
