Children in foster care will get presents for Christmas this year, thanks to a partnership between two local groups.
Volunteers from ULM’s Caddo-Bossier Foster Grandparents Program are providing Youth Justice CASA with gifts for children.
The foster parent volunteers are made up of more than 60 volunteers.
Neva Jones, director of the program said, “We know what the season is about. Sharing and giving to those that are in special need.”
Christi Robinson of CASA agreed. “It’s very important. At the CASA program we really really strive to provide Christmas. Not just one or two gifts for each child but we want to provide them a complete Christmas, Robinson said. “So with partnerships like this one, we’re able to do that.”
More than 100 toys were collected.
