Backpack Fundraiser for CASA

Every summer, we collect school supplies and backpacks to help benefit the children in the Court Appointed Special Assistant (CASA) program. These children are in the foster care system and are in need of school supplies. Our goal is to collect 50 (this may be updated) pre-filled backpacks. Please help us in reaching our goal!

Please fill a new or very gently used backpack with school supplies such as:

  • 1.5" 3-ring binder
  • 200+ sheets loose-leaf paper
  • 4 single subject spiral notebooks
  • 3 composition books
  • 10 pens
  • 10 pencils #2
  • 24 crayons
  • 5 colored 2-pocket folders

Other supplies that are often desired:

  • TI80 Multi Function Math & Science Calculator
  • calculators
  • 3 & 5 subject spiral notebooks
  • pencil cases
  • coloring books
  • colored markers & pencils
  • erasers
