CASA Children Return to School with New Supplies!
Thanks to the generous donations of our supporters and Friends of CASA, we were able to send over 60 children back to school with new backpacks and school supplies! A big thank you as well to the National Council of Jewish Women for their Back to School Store Project. This provided backbacks, clothes, coats, shoes and other necessities to 45 children. Our CASA children are eager to learn and do well in school, so by sending them off to school with the appropriate supplies we can feel good knowing that they have the tools to do their very best.
We wish the children we serve the best of luck for a successful school year!
