Adopt- A- CASA

Thursday, Nov 7, 2019

  We invite you to “catch the holiday spirit” by helping children enjoy the holidays. CASA of Johnson and Wyandotte Counties serves children, birth – age 18, who have a history of abuse and neglect and who reside in foster care. Help brighten the season for our kids by supporting our holiday activities – CASA’s “Adopt-a-Child” program and/or our annual Holiday Party for Kids.
 
Ways You Can Help…
Be a Sponsor for Adopt-A-CASA Child
Sponsoring a child's Wish List is an opportunity to provide gifts to one or more deserving children. Each child completes a Wish List of 4-5 desired items. The sponsor will receive the list and shop for new items for the child/children. The average sponsored list is $100, and often includes one “big” item along with a few smaller gifts.
 
Items should be delivered to the CASA office (preferably wrapped) on designated drop off days. The child’s CASA volunteer will deliver the gifts to the child in mid-December.
 
Adopt-a-CASA Child Gift Drop Off: Monday, Dec 9 – Wednesday, Dec 11th 9:00am-6:00pm
Please include the child’s wish list and gift receipts in an envelope.
