CASA Christmas Gift Drive Extended by One Week

in Events

CASA of the Sabine Neches Region is extending its Christmas Gift Drive for one week until Thursday, December 15, 2022.

Many generous donations have already been received, but there is a long list of gifts still needed to fulfill the Christmas wishes of 137 children served by our CASA program this Christmas season. These children have been removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect from Orange, Hardin, Newton, Jasper, Tyler, and Sabine Counties.

Gifts can be purchased directly from the children’s wish lists on Amazon and shipped directly to CASA’s office. CASA staff and volunteers will deliver the gifts to the children. Visit www.casasnr.org to access the Amazon Wishlist or to make a monetary donation to purchase gifts.

Gifts can also be dropped off at these locations: The Orange Public Library, Granger Chevrolet in Orange, Weaver Bros Motor in Jasper, and Aarin Penry Insurance in Lumberton.

For questions or more information, contact Kristie Veillon by phone at (409) 888-2481 or by email at info@casasnr.org.
