Oftentimes, when a child is abruptly removed from a home due to abuse or neglect, the child leaves with nothing but the clothing on his or her back. The child may be left without hygiene products, clothes, or comfort items such as a blanket or teddy bear.
The money we raise through Lift Up Sarpy County, a 501C(3), created to manage donations on our behalf, allows us to support the children CASA serves with many needed items in time of crisis, and afterwards, in times of healing.
The requests we receive for assistance are numerous and varied. Donations received may be used to help cover expenses of cherished outings, such as a day at the skating rink or at the pool, which may help to bring a little normalcy to an otherwise chaotic life. Funds may also be used to purchase necessary school supplies or to cover fees for after-school events.
We greatly appreciate donations of any amount. On behalf of the children we serve, we sincerely thank you for your support.
