Brighten a Child's Day!

Activity Kits are gallon sized re-sealable bags containing art supplies, activity books, games and reading material. We give each child at Casa Alitas a kit to enjoy while they are at our shelter and during their upcoming travel.

You can build kits and donate them! This is a wonderful project for a school class, a church group, a family or anyone who loves children.

 

Simply purchase supplies, assemble kits, then contact us to arrange for drop off. 

What to Put in the Kits?

There are three kinds of Activity Kits, for 1 to 4 year olds, 5 to 11 year olds, and 12 to 18 year olds. Use the lists below to build kits at home then contact us to drop them off!
