Toys for Tots donates 2,275 toys to the Friends of CASA Hawaii (FOCH), a 501c3 nonprofit whose primary mission is to support the CASA Program in the recruitment, training, and supervision of community volunteers. FOCH also provides resources that enhances the CASA’s opportunities to promote normalcy and well-being for children in foster care.
“Because of today’s generous donation, this gives us an opportunity to give a little more happiness to children in foster care. They will be given a gift on either their birthday or when they attend their court hearings.” – Amphay Champathong, CASA Program Manager
“We want to encourage our children to attend their hearings so they know what’s going on with their case. Being a former foster youth myself, I know how important it is to be involved in your own case. It’s really a great collaboration for all of us at court to come together.” – Malia Malufau, UH Law School Youth-in-Court Facilitator.
