CASDA advocates and volunteers will be collecting donations at Superior's East End Super One, 2222 E. Fifth St., from 1:00pm - 5:00pm, Thursday, October 11, Friday October 12, and Saturday, October 13.

 

CASDA offers emergency shelter to women and children needing to escape or take time out from a violent home. CASDA’s shelter operates 24 hours a day, year-round. The state of the economy today impacts the services that CASDA can offer to shelter residents and to other survivors of abuse in our region. The Shelter Donation Drive is a necessary event that encourages community involvement and helps CASDA support individuals hurt by violence.

Items most needed by the shelter include:

●Cleaning Supplies, such as bleach, all-purpose cleaner, disinfectant spray or wipes, Swiffer sweeper pads and toilet cleaner.

●Non-Perishable Foods, such as soup, coffee, Hamburger Helper, and macaroni & cheese.

●Over the counter Medications, such as Tylenol, Advil, cold meds, Midol, Tums, Benadryl and children’s medications.

●Laundry Soap/Dryer Sheets

●Plastic Bags, such as Garbage Bags (Sm & Lg) and Zip Locks (any size)

●Paper Towels/Toilet Paper

●Latex Gloves/ Medical Gloves

●Gift Cards: Any

All donations will be greatly appreciated.

If you'd like to help, but are unable to donate during the Super One drive, you can drop off donations during normal business hours, Monday through Friday 8am – 4pm, at CASDA’s main office, 318 21st Ave. East in Superior.
