  • Gift cards to craft, retail and grocery stores
  • Pencils
  • Tissues/paper towels
  • Scotch/masking/colored or patterned duct tape
  • Glue sticks
  • Ziploc style sandwich bags (generic is fine)
  • Permanent or washable markers
  • Variety of age appropriate games and toys
  • Colorful yarn

If there are any other items you wish to contribute, please contact the CASP Director.


Fundraisers
There are several ways you can help CASP raise funds to support our programming. CASP fundraising is designed to be as low-impact as possible and to take advantage of things you're already doing.

Spirit Wear
Thank you to everyone who participated in our CASP Spirit Wear order. We have a variety of clothing featuring the CASP logo. If you are still interested in purchasing CASP spirit wear, please contact the Director as we have extra merchandise on hand. 

SaveAround
CASP is participating in our annual fall SaveAround Ithaca/Cortland coupon book fundraiser. The book has been revised, reduced in price and has a whole new look. In addition to these fabulous changes if you purchase a book for $20.00 CAPS receives 50% profit and you can download the mobile app for 12 months more of extra added savings. A new addition this year is that you can preview all the books (local and out of town) on line. Orders can also be placed on-line using a credit card. Please let me know if you have any questions.

SCRIP Gift Card Program

You can help raise money for CASP while doing your everyday shopping and dining out! SCRIP is fundraising while you shop!

Just purchase gift cards for America’s favorite retailers through CASP during the school year and use them in place of cash, checks, or credit cards for purchases you were going to make anyway! Each card purchased carries an associated “contribution” of 2-15% or more to CASP.

Gift cards are available for over 300 national and local retailers. Also available are Visa, MasterCard, and American Express prepaid cards with no activation fee. Groceries, clothing, dining out, movies (at home or in the theater), gas, and home improvement are all things we need and use on a regular basis. They are also things that can be purchased from buying pre-paid gift cards. Of course there are all those special holidays, vacations, birthdays, and times when we just need to treat ourselves or someone we love – SCRIP has cards for those too!

SCRIP order forms are distributed to CASP parents throughout the school year. If you are a community member and interested in supporting CASP by purchasing gift cards, please contact the parent of a CASP student or the CASP Director for further information.
