Stocking-making for Child Watch & CASA- RESCHEDULED 11/20!
Stocking Making for CASA
November 20, 2018
3:00 pm - 7:00 pm
DUE TO BAD WEATHER AND SCHOOL CLOSINGS, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 3- 7 PM.
Child Watch/CASA put out this call and Ephemera Paducah’s Valerie Pollard enthusiastically raised her hand!
This year, we are hoping to add a little more cheer for the kids we serve in our community. Our goal, with great support from local families, groups, and businesses like YOU reading this, is to provide every child in our care with a Christmas Stocking this year. This means that we will hope to have help making stockings for over 100 children! It will be a big undertaking, we realize, as then we will be stuffing and distributing them!
We are honored to help out this great organization with a Stocking-making party from 3 – 7 pm on TUESDAY, November 20, 2018, at our Studio.
There are SO many different ways to help!
