Students build playhouse to benefit group that helps children in crisis



Lindbergh High School students in David Blackwood’s Industrial Technology class recently constructed a train-shaped playhouse that will be raffled off at St. Louis Mills to benefit Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA, of St. Louis County.

Students raised funds to build the train by constructing children’s rocking chairs earlier this year and selling them as holiday gifts.

This is the fourth annual CASAs for Kids Playhouse Event and the second year Blackwood’s class has participated. The playhouses will be raffled off to the public, and all proceeds will go directly to help children in crisis.

Tickets are on sale at St. Louis Mills from May 20 through June 5, and are $5 for one, $10 for three, or $30 for 10. Tickets can also be purchased by calling (314) 615-2908.

CASA of St. Louis County is a non-profit agency that advocates for children who have been abused or neglected.
