The annual CASA IMPACT! Silent Auction and Luncheon fundraiser, hosted by CASA of the South Plains, was a massive success! Because of the overwhelming support from members of the South Plains community, CASA of the South Plains raised over $55,000 that will be used to help recruit, train, and support CASA Volunteers who are desperately needed to speak up for the well-being of abused and neglected children in foster care. Attendees enjoyed a delicious catered lunch from United Supermarkets, were able to bid on some fantastic items generously donated by local businesses, and heard the powerful story of a young man’s journey through foster care with his CASA Volunteer. Congratulations to Brad Nelson, this year’s winner of the Todd Monroe Reno Champion for Children Award. Thank you to everyone who attended and showed their support for CASA.
A CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocate, is a volunteer who helps a foster child navigate the child welfare system and ensure their needs are being met while working to help find safe, permanent homes. CASA volunteers make a tremendous impact in the lives of the foster children they serve and more are needed to help make sure foster children do not have to face the chaos of the child welfare system alone.
