CASA Holiday Gift Drive
We are partnering with our Court Appointed Special Advocates of Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem Counties (CASA of CGS) to help local youth in the foster care system.
During what can be such an incredibly emotional time for youth who have experienced abuse and neglect and have been separated from their families, CASA of CGS is dedicated to brightening their lives a bit by ensuring that each child they serve receives a present just for them. Something as simple as opening a special gift can make a tremendous impact in their life by reminding them that they are seen, they are supported, and they are loved.
There are two ways you can support these kids this holiday season:
1. Sponsor a specific youth. As a church we have committed to a specific set of teens and have their wish lists. Contact Joanna (856-213-0824 or firstname.lastname@example.org) and sign up to be a sponsor today! Items will need to be brought to church by Saturday, Dec. 4.
2. Shop online for some stocking stuffers.
These are some extra goodies to add to the gift bags. You can click on the link to go to a “wish list” at Amazon
. There you can see the items, their descriptions, and the quantities suggested by CASA of CGS. You purchase the items through Amazon (or a different vendor if you want), but they ask for the items to be shipped directly to their office at 40 East Commerce St. Bridgeton NJ 08302 ATT: Julia
Most importantly, please pray for these kids. Pray that God will reveal himself to them during these difficult times and that they will know the love and care He has for each of them.
