The Kilgore High School Science Club is holding a toy and clothing drive for the holidays. The students and advisers have decided to donate all goods collected to East Texas CASA.

East Texas CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) work with children in foster care for a variety of reasons and bring gifts to those within the foster care system during the holidays. Learn more by contact East Texas CASA at 1121 Judson Road, Suite 184, Longview, Texas 75601.

The group can also be reached at 903-753-8093 or by fax to 903-753-4841.

East Texas CASA provides trained volunteer advocates to be the voice for an abused or neglected child that has been removed from his or her home due to abuse or neglect.

The club will be collecting donations through Dec. 13 in order to ensure that the group is able to get the donations to CASA in time for the holidays. Donation drop-off points currently are RM 207, the Library, RM 116, and RM 407 at Kilgore High School. The science club will provide boxes in which to place the items.

From the organizers, “Please make sure all toys and clothing are in good working order and clean. Thank you all for your help and may your holidays be full of cheer.”
