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 10 – Wednesday, Dec 12th 9:00am-6:00pm
Please include the child’s wish list and gift receipts in an envelope.
No time to shop? Teens especially enjoy a gift card. Make an online contribution or check to CASA of Johnson and Wyandotte Counties, and volunteers will do the shopping for you. (Please designate “Children’s Holiday” on your check.
For more information or to sponsor a Wish List: Nina Kimbrough or call 913-715-4042.
Support CASA’s Holiday Party for Kids
Our Friends of CASA volunteer auxiliary hosts a Holiday Party for CASA kids in early December. Food, crafts, games and, of course, a visit and special gift from Santa make this a special holiday celebration. You can support the party by…
• Organizing a Toy Drive – Collect NEW toys and gifts for children ages birth – 17 (avg. $10-$15 per item) for Santa to surprise each child with a specially-chosen gift. CASA can provide a list of “frequently requested gifts.”
Toys for the Holiday Party Drop Off: Monday, Dec 3rd – Thursday, Dec 6th 9:00am-6:00pm.
• Donate party supplies, board games, sponsor lunch, or donate treats.
Help make this celebration a highlight of the holiday season.
