Annual 12 Days of Giving campaign kicks off Nov. 12

Holiday campaign supports CASA’s Holiday Project, providing gifts and essential needs items for foster children from San Benito County.

The holidays are nearly upon us, and what better time to help individuals, children, and families in need? The annual 12 Days of Giving campaign, set to kick off on Nov. 12 and conclude on Nov. 29, is matching your monetary donations, making this the perfect opportunity to maximize your giving while helping San Benito County residents this holiday season.

Participating nonprofits include CASA of San Benito County, Chamberlain’s Children Center, Community Food Bank, Emmaus House, and Salvation Army.

For CASA of San Benito County, the 12 Days of Giving couldn’t come at a better time; funds raised through the campaign have been immensely beneficial to CASA’s Holiday Project. Through the Holiday Project, CASA provides gifts and essential-needs items such as winter coats and shoes to an often overlooked demographic in our community: foster children.

Most foster children from San Benito County will not be home to celebrate the holidays with their families. By providing them with gifts, clothing, and shoes to open, CASA is providing these children with hope and tradition.

CASA is grateful for the generosity of the community, business, organizations and individuals for making the 12 Days of Giving possible, and the CASA Holiday Project successful. However, in order to ensure this year is successful, we still need your support.

To make a contribution to CASA’s Holiday Project through the 12 Days of Giving campaign, checks can be made directly to CASA between Nov. 12 and Nov. 29, with "12 Days of Giving" in the memo to ensure your contribution is matched. If you prefer to give online, you may do so here; please be sure to include “CASA” in the purpose/designation field.

We greatly appreciate your consideration in helping us to make the holidays brighter for foster children in need. If you are interested in assisting CASA with the Holiday Project or would like additional information, please contact us at (831) 637-4992, email, or visit our website at

Matching funds for the 12 Days of Giving are made possible by our community partners, Community Foundation for San Benito County and United Way of San Benito County, as well as campaign sponsors including Tiffany Motor Company, True Leaf Farms, Pierce Real Estate, Teknova, Rotary Club of Hollister, and Recology.
