Help End Homelessness by Volunteering with CASA
COVID-19 has impacted the way CASA has been able to utilize our volunteers.
Over the years volunteers have been working in our offices, at our properties, helping us with social gatherings and more. Social distancing has caused a total reassessment of volunteer activities, especially as we realize that the end is not yet in site.
But here are a few things you can do:
Start Your Own Fundraiser:
CASA relies on community support to bridge the gap between what our residents can afford to pay in rent and our costs to maintain their high-quality rental housing. With our peer-to-peer giving platform, your friends and family can join you in fundraising for CASA! Get started now by creating your own fundraising page.
Birthdays, weddings and anniversaries are all wonderful occasions for celebrating, but why not skip the unwanted gifts and ask for donations towards CASA as your chosen charity instead? By asking your friends and family to donate, you will be raising awareness and supporting affordable housing in the Triangle. Set up your celebratory or in-memory fundraising campaign.
If online fundraising isn’t for you, there are many other ways you can raise donations for CASA. You could do a bake sale, get crafty and sell your creations online, plan a party, or host a class. For example, Blue Lotus Yoga Studio hosts an annual yoga class with the proceeds benefiting CASA. Another local company hosted a gingerbread house making party with the entry fees supporting CASA.
Don’t forget to observe any government rules on social distancing and personal protective equipment (PPE) during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Let Us Know Your Plans
We are here to help, and we’d love to hear about what you’re planning. With your permission we might even be able to share your fundraising challenge or event via our social media pages. Let us know by emailing Alexis at email@example.com.
Organize a Gift Card Drive:
We collect donations of gift cards for essentials like groceries and toiletries to support our residents who may be facing a financial crisis. Walmart gift cards of $25 and above are the most useful because they provide variety and value. CASA’s Behavioral Health Intervention Team works closely with our residents in crisis and will distribute the gift cards to those in need. Contact Kathleen with any questions or to coordinate drop off: Kderubio@casanc.org; 919-307-3433
