College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) 14th-annual Giving Tree brought holiday cheer to hundreds of children and families in Idaho this past holiday season. The College’s Psychology Club, Psi Beta, Veteran’s Association, Student Nurses Association, and Social Work Club partnered with CASA of Southwest Idaho to collect 500 gifts, which supported more than 400 children associated with the organization.
CASA of Southwest Idaho is an independent non-profit organization representing the best interests of children in foster care.
“Generosity and kindness can have a powerful impact on those receiving it, especially children,” said Professor of Psychology, Psi Beta, and Psychology Club Advisor, Heather Schoenherr. “Receiving a present not only gives children a material representation of support from their community, but it provides them with hope. “
“Thank you for bringing joy and cheer to the foster children and their families every year,” said CASA of Southwest Idaho.
