Items to Donate

CASA participates in the Martin Luther King Day of Service every January. Volunteers put together “Welcome Home” baskets that are given to new tenants throughout the year to ease their transition to a CASA home. The baskets contain handy items for move-in day. The “Welcome Home” baskets include:

  • Medium-size laundry baskets
  • Bathroom soap/washcloths/towels
  • Small bottle of dishwashing soap
  • Toothbrush (single package) & toothpaste
  • Small laundry detergent
  • Kitchen towels/sponges/scrub pads
  • Non-perishable food items
  • Pot holders
  • Clothes pins
  • Small All-Purpose cleaning product (i.e. Lysol/Clorox/Windex)
  • Can/bottle openers/cooking utensils

On Martin Luther King Day of Service, younger CASA volunteers create hand-made “Welcome Home” cards to finish off the baskets, with stencils, crayons, markers, construction paper, stickers, glue sticks, scrapbook paper and other items so that the cards are colorful, creative and welcoming. You and/or your group can volunteer during the week or on weekends. Please email  email hidden; JavaScript is required or call 919.307.3433 to get started today.
