The Child Advocates main office in Milpitas is home to the “Store”, a dedicated room filled with new items for foster children. These include: toys, make-up, toiletries (full-size), wallets, purses,gift cards for restaurants and stores where young people like to eat and shop — all free for our CASA’s to give to their foster children. Most of the Store donations of clothes, books, and school supplies come from our partner, Mattress Firm.
To make an in-kind donation to the Store, please contact Vivian Lambert or call 408-573-5604.
Tickets and Gift Cards
Since CASA volunteers are not reimbursed for the cost of activities they share with their child, we encourage donors to give event tickets to community plays, sporting events and movie theaters so the CASAs can treat their child to a fun outing. Gift cards are always welcome — especially during the holiday season. Gifts cards to Kohl's, Target and Walmart are particularly popular with our teens. Gift cards can be mailed or dropped off between 9 am - 5 pm M-F at our office, 509 Valley Way, bldg. 2, Milpitas, CA.
