School Supplies for CASA Kids

The Marksville Chamber of Commerce is partnering up with the Avoyelles chapter of CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) to help collect school supplies for the children in foster care. We are asking our chamber members to please pick up a few extra items while doing your own school shopping to help these kids go to school with all the items they need. Paper, pens, notebooks, backpacks, binders, crayons, rulers, etc… We will also accept monetary donations or gift cards as well. All donations can be dropped off at the Chamber office Mon- Friday 9am- 3pm. Deadline for donations is AUGUST 3rd!!!!

Contact the chamber office if you have any questions.

For more information on CASA please check out their website at www.rapidesCAC.orgPlease consider becoming a CASA Volunteer. Avoyelles training starts August 20th.
