WARREN, NJ - Do you want to help children in foster care get ready to go back to school?  Watchung Hills is collecting school supplies this summer to be distributed to children in foster care through CASA-SHaW.
 
WHRHS Superintendent Elizabeth Jewett said, “Our district leadership team thought it would be meaningful to engage, as a group, in giving back to an organization as part of our summer Leadership Retreat on August 19. After considering a few options, we thought that we could help to collect and assemble backpacks of school supplies for children in foster care.”
 
CASA-SHaW, (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Somerset, Hunterdon, and Warren Counties) is an organization that trains advocates for children living in foster care (https://casashaw.org/ ).
