A CASA volunteer supervisor says she delivered a bag of toys and a quilt to a two-year-old girl recently. The girl skipped the toys, grabbed the quilt and immediately cuddled with it on the couch. The supervisor says “Can you believe she didn’t even take time to open the toys? She had the biggest smile on her face as she watched her cartoons while wrapped in that cozy quilt!” This story is what CASA Quilters is about. We make quilts and blankets of all kinds to bring comfort to children during traumatic times in their lives. Join us by bringing your handmade donations to the Lobby on Sunday, November 26th. This will be our last collection for 2017.
Fill this empty box with coats—kids to adults. It is a coat drive sponsored by the City of Duncanville, Rotary Club of Duncanville and Keep Duncanville Beautiful. They will be accepting ALL SIZES, including adults.
Coats can be dropped off thru Sunday December 3rd in the Lobby.
Sunshine will be at Doris Poole’s home, will hear about Duncanville Outreach Ministries and have lunch.

Holiday Box for Those Experiencing Homelessness – A program of The Stewpot
The holidays are almost here and everyone, including our friends in need, appreciate receiving gifts in the spirit of the season. You are invited to fill a shoe box with inexpensive necessity items that might make living on the streets a little easier. This is a great project for individuals, families, faith, school or scout groups, and civic organizations! Use an empty shoe box (standard size). Please only use boxes that have a separate bottom and lid. Please wrap the lid and the box separately. The box should not be wrapped shut when finished. Fill the box with a variety of small, inexpensive gifts. Use the gift ideas listed. Please fill boxes with ADULT, UNISEX items only. Once filled, place a rubber band around each box. Add a personal note in a separate envelope. You may enclose a holiday card or note from you/your family or group. (Please do not include addresses or phone numbers.) Place your note inside the box.
Click here for a list of suggested items and more information regarding the boxes.
THESE BOXES WILL BE COLLECTED IN THE LOBBY ON SUNDAYS, NOVEMBER 19 & 26.
