All of us at All Saints Church Foster Care Project and the Adopt a Child Abuse Caseworker Program wish to thank you for the generous outpouring of food, toys, and gift cards over the holiday season. Your support helped make the bleak times of 2020 a little more joyful.
Here is a note of appreciation we received from a 13-year-old girl, accompanied by a colorful drawing of a Christmas tree, cozy fireplace, and four Christmas stockings, "I am writing this letter to thank the people that donated the gift cards to me and my siblings. We are so thankful and God bless you."
And this one from a little boy: "Thank you for giving us food to eat and that was very sweet of you and it was so good to eat. And we needed food to eat and thank you for the gift. God bless you and stay safe."
We are planning to do a little something for our children, youth, and families for Valentine’s Day.

CASA volunteers receive special training and are appointed by a judge to advocate on behalf of a child with often life-changing results. CASA is actively recruiting new CASA volunteers even as the offices remain closed to the public.
