CASA's Christmas Storytime

These are real stories of how donations have impacted CASA children in our community. *Some details have been changed to protect the identity of these children. 

After over two years in foster care, sixteen-year-old Gabriel really wanted a gift card for Christmas so he could go shopping for his own clothes.  Gabriel wanted to be able to pick the things he would be wearing and have some “brand name” things to wear to school.   A generous gift card was given by a doner, and Gabriel was able to go shopping.  At the CASA’s next visit, Gabriel was all smiles, showing his new shoes and clothes.

Ten-year-old Gloria and seven-year-old Gracie received large, homemade quilts for Christmas.  Their mom was so excited that someone took their time to make quilts just for her girls. 

Gloria and Gracie had just returned home to live with their mom in time for Christmas and the quilts helped make their room feel like their own. 

Eight-year-old Jack has been in a relative placement for a couple years, after the tragic passing of his mother.  Prior to Christmas, Jack showed his CASA how he couldn’t ride his skateboard because it was too small for him.  Jack asked for and received a new skateboard for Christmas, which someone generously donated for Jack.   When opening the skateboard on Christmas morning, Jack brightly exclaimed, “it’s exactly what I wanted and the perfect size.”

Message from a donor:

We know firsthand of the physical, mental and emotional turmoil of children who are served by CASA.  We know we cannot provide everything to everyone, but we also know that through CASA we can provide something to at least one child so they can remember a day that special things were done just for them.  We know our entire donation is going to a

child to give them that day.   We hope they have a memory of that one good day every time they see, touch or use the gift that they received, and it brings them a smile.

 

Plus, it makes us feel good!

Help make a child's Christmas one they won't forget.
