CASA Christmas

As foster children frequently move homes, holidays are especially difficult for them to experience.  As the consistent person in their lives, the CASA advocate has the opportunity to see the child before each holiday.  CASA loves to take this chance to help our assigned foster kiddos know that someone cares about them.

Each year, Macon County CASA receives donated gifts for each of our 315 assigned foster children.  In 2018 & 2019, CASA partnered with Girls Who Code who organized community donations and gifts.

In December 2020, with the organizational and financial help of The Young Leaders in Action, The Community Foundation of Macon County, and Decatur Rotary Club #180, Macon County CASA and our volunteers were able to provide Christmas gifts for our just over 320 assigned local foster children.  These gifts were a true blessing to all of the children who received them and we are continuously grateful for the community’s commitment to change our local foster children’s stories. 

To all of our individual and organizational gift givers below, we offer a very special thank you for your support of CASA this holiday season:
