How To Help

Build a Backpack

Build a Backpack

School supplies are a budget-breaking expense for foster families, a full list for one child can easily cost $70.  We need your help to ensure that every child CASA serves has the supplies they need to succeed.  Enlist your club, Scout Troop, office department, or faith community to collect and drop off NEW* school supplies that our CASA Volunteers will deliver to their CASA kids. Because our office is under construction, our drop-off point this year is the Home Builders Association, 600 East 103rd Street, Kansas City, Missouri. You may drop off supplies between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday - Friday beginning Friday, July 8th, and ending Monday, August 8th. The lists below will give you an idea of the needed supplies. Please leave your name and address at drop-off so that we may properly acknowledge your contribution! Or, if you'd rather us purchase the needed supplies, click the link below and choose "School Supply Drive" on the donor choice form, or mail a check to Jackson County CASA, 2544 Holmes, Kansas City, MO 64108, and write "Build a Backpack" in the memo line.

*We are only collecting new supplies at this time.
