Holiday Programs

Holiday Gift Card Extravaganza

During the holiday season, the communities generous donations of gift cards allow the Council to supply a $25 gift card to CASA children 11 and under and a $50 gift card to those 12 and over.  The children have to a day out with their CASA to “Buy anything they want” with their own card.  For many of the children, this is the first time they are taken to the store and allowed to pick out something  just for themselves.  Some of the children choose things for other members of their family or foster family because it makes them feel good to buy something for others.

The program was a wonderful success for everyone and will be continued in the future.

Holiday Trees

Each year, holiday trees are located in various stores and businesses in Tucson, Sahuarita and Green Valley. They are decorated with envelopes requesting gift cards to fulfill a CASA child’s holiday wish list. The Holiday Trees are a way for concerned members of the community to brighten the holiday of a CASA child in need.

The CASA program is always in need of gift cards from local businesses, discount and department stores, movie theaters, bookstores, toy stores, hairdressers, etc. If your business or organization would like to help us fulfill the wishes of these children, please contact us at 575-5130.

Holiday Party for CASA Children

Most of our CASA children have never had the opportunity to celebrate Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanza or other religions during the December time frame.  Every year the CASA Support Council hosts a holiday party at Golf N’ Stuff on the 1st Sunday in December.  The CASA brings her/his CASA child and they enjoy a number of activities, including miniature golf, boats, bumper cars, laser tag and video games and a visit with Santa and his elf who does face painting.  They enjoy pizza, sodas, and cookies.  Each child gets to pick out a teddy bear to take home.  It is a day that always brings smiles to our CASA children.
