CASA welcomed 15 employees from Church & Dwight in Princeton for a fun afternoon of volunteering to brighten the lives of children in the foster care system. The Church & Dwight volunteers chose CASA for Children of Mercer and Burlington Counties during a “week of service” to help kids in the local community who are in need of essential items and services.
The enthusiastic volunteers, who are chemists or technicians by profession, divided into small teams to create a dozen “no sew” fleece blankets for CASA foster youth who are often shuffled between housing or residential facilities with very few possessions. The “no sew” blankets were created in bright patterns and presented to the CASA staff, who will distribute them to the youth from our service area of Mercer and Burlington Counties. The fleece blankets represent hope and happiness for children who have many challenges as they move through the family court system.
