Attendees are encouraged to bring an unwrapped, toy, gift card or cash donation for Child Advocates of San Antonio (CASA). For children spending the holidays in foster care away from their families, receiving a special gift means a lot. Some great gift ideas are: dolls, trucks, board games, sporting items, inexpensive jewelry, makeup and nail polish. Gift cards are especially needed for older children and teenagers. CASA requests that donors please refrain from bringing toys that could be considered aggressive or violent (such as toy guns, nerf guns, swords, etc.). CASA and its volunteers do a wonderful job providing a voice for these children — please help us make this SABA’s BEST toy drive yet!
