Dear Friends and Valued Sponsors,

CASA of the Pines (CASA) has experienced what everyone and every business has experienced: the struggles of 2020 and the impact of Covid-19. Even though much of usual, everyday life has fallen by the wayside, one thing has not:  the precious children in foster care.  This year has been particularly difficult for them, with added struggles that would only face a child in foster care.  Parent and family visits halted, even more educational delay; and, in general, another level of chaos added to an already chaotic life.

On a positive note, there has been substantial Christmas tour planning and interest. CASA has been in communication with several home owners, a business location, and an individual with an offsite home feature that is able to be toured open-aired.  CASA is also exploring the plan of providing a mix of virtual touring, alongside on site-locations that will be following safety protocols.  The committee is excited about doing something new, creative, and innovative.

Please join and continue to support CASA and the tour.  Because of you, CASA will be able to continue to provide for the needs of children in Angelina County that would otherwise go without stability in their lives.  Please consider sponsoring and feel free to contact our office with any questions. Again, CASA thanks you for your valuable time, continued kindness, and community support.

We hope you and your family are safe and healthy.
