The shelter operates 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
The state of the economy today impacts the services CASDA can offer to victims of abuse. The “Shelter Donation Drive” is a necessary event that encourages community involvement and supports CASDA in providing supportive services to individuals hurt by violence.
CASDA advocates and volunteers are collecting donations outside Walmart, 3801 Tower Ave., in Superior, today through Friday during the hours of 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3-6 p.m.
Any donations would be greatly appreciated. The items that the shelter is in most need of include household cleaners, toilet paper, paper towels, facial tissue, trash bags, women and children’s socks and underwear (new, all sizes) and women’s bras.
If you are unable to donate during the Walmart drive, donations can be dropped off from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays at CASDA’s main office on the third floor of Hawkes Hall, 2231 Catlin Ave.
CASDA provides supportive services to individuals hurt by domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse. For more than 20 years, CASDA has been the only service provider in Douglas County that provides services solely to victims of abuse.
