#CaseyCares - PJ Party Program

A student in our Middle School is asking you to consider supporting “Casey Cares”. This organization assists medically fragile children in many ways. One way in which they support children is through their Pajama Party program. This program provides PJ and Movie Night buckets to homebound families to treat them to a family movie night- complete with pizza, pajamas, and popcorn.


Ways to support this initiative include donating two-piece pajamas (in adult or infant sizes) or providing monetary support through movie or pizza gift cards.


Please drop off your donations in the box in the Campus lobby by April 18 and we thank you for supporting this cause.
