CASA of Kern County requests the following donations:
- Advocates spend lots of time with their CASA children on outings away from the foster homes or group homes. These outings help create a bond of trust, and are an important component of the CASA volunteer’s role. The Advocates do this out of the kindness of their heart but also out of their own pocket. Can you help them with these activities? We are always looking for new and exciting things to do with our kids.
- Gas Gift Cards: Gas cards are always appreciated as Kern County is geographically huge. Some CASA Advocates travel to Tehachapi, Lake Isabella, Boron or even as far as Ridgecrest to visit their CASA child. These gift cards help tremendously with that expense.
We have a generous community that has donated Bakersfield Blaze tickets, CALM tickets, Condor tickets and Rabobank presentations to name a few.
CASAs continuously try to create the bond between children and their parents; whenever possible the CASA will give any community activity /event information to the family as a unit. When the children are in foster or group homes, the CASA will take the child to these activities or events.
- Fast Food Gift Certificates: Our kids love to go out to eat, and many times associate CASA visits with trips to get ice cream/yogurt, McDonalds, Burger King, In and Out or any other fast food restaurant. We always appreciate these gift cards and certificates.
- If you would like to make a donation, please contact us at (661) 321-4862, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. This list will continue to change as needs arise, please check back.
