Volunteers Needed for our Trunk or Treat Fall Celebration 10-23-21

Volunteers are needed for ASA Now's 4th Annual Trunk or Treat Fall Celebration which will take place Saturday, October 23rd in Mesa, AZ from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. in the Jacob's Mission Community Center Parking Lot. 

Kinship, Foster & Adoptive Families will be joining us for a Spooktacular Night of Family Fun

We will be practicing social distancing and masks will be required.  

This year the event will be a oneway walk through maze making it easier to socially distance and keep everyone safe.  We will be having 10 minute time slots for families entering the event to ensure we are maintaining distance between groups.

Prepacked popcorn and cotton candy will be handed out the night of the event.  Volunteers are asked to pass out individually wrapped candy while wearing gloves.  We will be providing gloves and masks if needed.  
 

**Gems Dress Up Closet will provide a limited number of new or like new costumes to registered children. Costumes will be collected, sorted, and bundled for pickup prior to the event so kids can be dressed up when they arrive.
 

On behalf of our parents, thank you so much for your support!

ASA Now is a volunteer-driven nonprofit organization that exists to serve children, youth and families impacted by foster care

ASA Now provides clothing, diapers, pull-ups, wipes, hygiene kits, new underwear and socks, blankets, food, backpacks, and other basic necessities to help ensure that the initial needs of children and youth touched by foster care are met.

Besides meeting basic needs, ASA Now holds Family Socials, Birthday Parties for Foster Children, Halloween Trunk or Treat, Christmas Parties and Christmas Presents, Support Groups, Parent Night Outs, Trauma Mama Retreats and Couples Retreats, On-going Presentations for Caregiver, Emergency Food Boxes and they offer fresh fruits/vegetables and/or perishable items every other week.

Only 30.7 percent of children who grow up in foster care graduate from high school and only 2.5 percent graduate from a four-year college.

ASA Now is investing in our state and investing in your future society by stepping up with solutions to reverse this alarming trend. They are renovating an old 8,000 sq. ft. church that sits on 3 acres. The church is being turned into a community center where children impacted by foster care can receive the direct supports needed to succeed.

Jacob’s Mission Community Center, an after-school center powered by ASA Now, will serve students K-12 by offering after school tutoring, dance, art, reading music, keyboard, ukulele, guitar, karate, yoga and cooking lessons. The Resource Center and mentorship program will help transition youth into adulthood by providing classes such as budgeting, cooking and nutrition, job resume, college prep, housing and more.
