CAS Projects Supporters
None of us have it all
together but Together
we have it all.
Many Times these word come out of our lips as we are overwhelmed with the needs and the positions to be filled.
Loraine Bossaller, Executive Director reminds us often it
be better for one million people to give a dollar than one
to give a million. Since one million people being involved
strengthens us into a mighty force of unity.
CAS Projects has hesitated to display supporters as
some do not want their giving announced and others
do not mind.
This group of supporters are a mighty group of one time
supporters to monthly supporters. In 2011 we sent out a mail out
to all that had given whether it was a bag of clothes or $100,000
and our mailing list went to over 800.
We greatly appreciate all who have been a part of making this
a debt free organization.
Belle Elementary Yearly Food Drive that helps our Thanksgiving Baskets
Three Rivers Electric Coop food drive with the community giving some food as coop gives lightbulbs. Three River Grant helped us with our first Life Skills classes on preparing for the job world. They also gave us money to buy the equipment and books needed.
Denny Ford in Rolla gathers food during December and blesses 27 local food pantries and we got to be one!!!!
Through the years the Mobile Pantry from The Food Bank has been a life saver from bringing in food each month when we didn't have a building to
bringing in frozen and refrigerated before we had a freezer unit and even in December 2011 bringing
in fresh fruit and potatoes and some meat.
Look at the overflowing blessing. Our freezer filled to the brim. Our warehouse overflowing the last couple months.
Wal-Mart Distribution has presented us with at least one $1,000 community Grant check per year for several years. A couple years we even received an extra from the Warehouse dept.
Modern Woodsmen has blessed us twice with matching grants. Once they presented us with a check for $5777
when we were putting in our electricity and again a matching amount for our Golf tournament on our freezer their $1500 match brought us to $3,328.
Here are the Modern Woodmen Youth that helped at the First Annual Golf Tournament and also later presented us a check for $500 on some fundraising efforts that included a cookie sales.
Western Catholic Union gave a matching Grant in 2011 to add to our Spaghetti Supper and Silent Auction bringing in a total of $1,758. This is the second time the Western Catholic Union has came to our aid in tough times. In our memory forever is etched the day the Rich Fountain Catholic Church did a bake sale before mass and the Western Catholic Union matched. The memo stated for our sister community.
Randy and Anita Frey are originally from the Belle and Owensville area as children. Today they live in Kansas City.
