Thanksgiving with CarePortal

Thanksgiving Meals Baskets

Thanks to the kindness and generosity of our valued community partners, Advocates for Children CASA has been able to provide the hundreds of children and families we work alongside with Thanksgiving Meal Baskets. This year, our organization is hoping to collaborate with CarePortal and the network of churches to help feed our families. Our mission is to improve the lives of children and youth who have experienced abuse, neglect, or other life challenges, by connecting them with volunteer advocates and activating community partnerships. If you and your church would like to assemble meal baskets for CASA families, please see the list of items below. If you have any questions about Advocates for Children CASA or our Thanksgiving meal program, please contact Jack Cregan. Thank you for supporting local children and families!
