Registration is closed

OCPA has partnered with Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Orange County to give back to children in the foster care system this holiday season by donating a gift for the Holiday Gift Drive.  CASA is a non-profit organization that serves severely abused, neglected and abandoned children through the recruitment, training, and continued support of volunteers who advocate and mentor children, representing their best interest in the courtroom and other settings. 

How the Gift Drive Works:

  1. RSVP to this event to confirm you are donating a gift for the drive.
  2. Purchase a gift ($25 value) and drop it off at an OCPA event or to the Pro Bono Co-Chairs. Please do not wrap the gift. 
  3. Deadline to turn in your gift is Saturday, December 1st.
