CASA of Polk County, Inc. has launched a Backpack Program for children who are wards of the Court due to abuse or neglect.

When children are removed from their home or placement, children don't have adequate resources in which to transport their personal belongings. CASA of Polk County, Inc. wants to send a message to the children that they will be taken care of.


CASA of Polk County, Inc. and Polk County Department of Human Services invites you to help us reach our goal of collecting 500 backpacks by donating a new or gently used backpack or by making a $30 donation to the program for the purchase of backpacks.

Backpacks can be dropped off at any of the locations listed below, and your donation may be tax deductible.

We are reaching out to retailers and manufacturers, churches and community groups, and doing so online and offline to reach our goal. We need your help too!


Backpacks received: 350


Percent of goal: 70%
