Gift cards needed to help foster kids

The Carson City Foster Home Support and Recruitment Coalition's annual St. Nicholas Day Gift Card Party will be from 5:30-9 p.m. Dec. 10 at Comma Coffee.

The coalition is inviting those who would like to help to bring a gift card from a store or even make a cash contribution that can be used to purchase gift cards.

The event is hosted by Jenny Scanland. Beer and wine will be served and there will be live entertainment. 

Checks should be made out to CASA of Carson City and marked in the lower left corner, "For Gift Cards."

These gift cards are usually placed in the hands of foster parents to help with sudden incidental child needs, often clothes, toys, activities.

They are a way of saying "Thank you" to foster parents and promoting healing for abused and neglected children.
