School Supply Drive

We are teaming up with Advocates for Children CASA, a local nonprofit organization improving the lives of children and youth who have experienced abuse, neglect, or other life challenges. Please join us in collecting new backpacks and school supplies for the children and youth served by CASA’s programs. All backpacks will be delivered to kids in Douglas, Arapahoe, Elbert, and Lincoln counties.

Please fill a brand new backpack with the supplies listed on the accompanying flyer. Filled backpacks can be dropped off The Grange or Taft office before July 29th or at Music in the Meadows on July 14th & July 28th. All donations are fully tax-deductible. Please contact Nikkie at with questions or for more information. You can also visit to learn more about CASA! Thank you for helping local kids start their school year strong!
