Help CASA fill 120 backpacks for foster children!
Ensure every foster child from Forsyth County has a new backpack with the school supplies they need to have a successful start to their school year!
There are 3 ways you can help us reach our goal of 120 backpacks:
1. Fill up a backpack (or two?) full of grade-appropriate school supplies from the list below. Be sure and mark the backpack as to what grade the supplies are for.
2. Donate cash or a gift card to Walmart/Target. CASA will shop for the needed backpacks and school supplies.
3. Donate items from the lists below. This is not an exhaustive list but a list of the most-needed school supplies.
