Letters: Become a CASA

Letters: Become a CASA


Well, there you are sitting in your comfy chair still basking in the warmth of the season that just passed. Family and friends seen. Wishes for a good year to come expressed and received. Best of all, you've had a brief respite from the world's woes and turmoil of your daily life. And man, did we all need that.

So now you're giving thought to the coming year. Maybe even feeling you ought to find some way to help make things better. You know, contribute. Do something good and positive. If so, folks I got a suggestion. Become a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA).

Volunteering to be a CASA means you'll be an advocate for a child. You will provide a voice. You will be able to make a difference in a child's life. It ain't easy, that's for sure. You'll see and experience tragedy and desperation, but the fact is, you can become the way forward for a child.

The question is, will you step up? Will you give a child the greatest gift of all, yourself? There's no better calling than working for a better life and future for a child.

If you have the desire to truly do something positive, call us at CASA and talk about what we do and how you can make a real difference to a child.

Our number is 360-414-5212.
