Check Out Our Amazon Wish List
When children come to the CAC for their interview, we provide snacks, drinks, and like to send them home with a backpack full of hygiene products, fidget toys, books, and school supplies. We run through these products rather quickly around here! We are so grateful when we receive donations that continue to make this possible!
