The holiday season kicked off in early December with the annual Area 1 Christmas Party graciously sponsored by Fast Lane Entertainment. A host of this event for the past few years, Fast Lane could not provide a more welcoming and festive environment! Foster children and their group homes and families, a total of 408 guests, were treated to pizza, ice cream, bowling, laser tag, rollercoasters and much more. Thanks to Unilever, not only did every child receive a stocking of goodies at the event, but every child also spent a few special moments with Santa and Mrs. Clause. What a treat for these deserving kids!
Fulfilling children’s wish lists is another job that CASA of Northwest Arkansas takes very seriously. With the help of more than 90 individuals and businesses, the community was able to fulfill 393 wish lists for foster children last year. That is simply amazing! Thank you, Northwest Arkansas, for making the needs of others a priority this holiday season.
If you wish you could have helped out, it’s not too late. There are only 306 days until next Christmas. Our Program Director Shelley Hart (firstname.lastname@example.org) will be happy to add your name to our list of elves this year!
