CASA Program hoping to bring holiday cheer to foster kids


A local organization is hoping the community will step up and help provide some kids with some holiday cheer.

The CASA Program of Saint Joseph County serves as an advocate for kids in foster care. They're looking for donations of gifts to help put a smile on the faces of  kids during what can be a difficult time.

"Their holidays are going to look very different than yours and mine," says Executive Director Brenda Matuszkiewicz. "This is a very traumatic time for kids being in care, but especially being in a residential setting during the holiday season."

If you'd like to donate a gift - just drop off at the CASA Program's location at the Juvenile Justice Center on South Michigan Street in South Bend.

The CASA Program is also looking for people to become volunteer advocates for some of the kids the program helps. If you're interested in learning more, visit their web site at or call 574-233-CASA (2272).
