Annual Casas for CASA fundraiser a tremendous success!

The annual Casas for CASA raffle fundraiser, hosted by CASA of the South Plains, was an enormous success! Thank you to everyone who purchased raffle tickets and helped support our mission to provide a CASA Volunteer to every child in foster care. Thank you to our partners at United Supermarkets and Market Street for providing the space for our event. Raffle tickets were sold for the opportunity to win a custom built playhouse provided by local community businesses. Because of the overwhelming support from members of the South Plains community, CASA of the South Plains raised $35,827 in ticket sales that will be used to help recruit, train, and support CASA Volunteers who are desperately needed to speak up for the well-being of children in foster care. 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.

Congratulations to all of our Casas for CASA winners!
