A special “Thank you!” to Next Gear for sponsoring this project!
CASA of Lafayette County is a non-profit organization that advocates for the best interests of abused and neglected children through the appointment of court-appointed, screened, trained community volunteers. Our local CASA chapter started in 2018 and works with children in the foster care system in our community. Junior Auxiliary is delighted to have established “CASA Helpers” a service project focused solely on how JA can support the children of CASA. We work with CASA board members and CASA advocates to identify gaps in the childrens’ needs, whether that is clothing, shoes, school supplies or even perhaps a bed and mattress, we also create initiatives to promote joy, happiness and encouragement to those children and the advocates that work tirelessly to serve them.
Most recently, JA gifted Christmas stockings to all the CASA children stuffed with fun toys, books, warm socks, gloves and other goodies and we kicked off their 2021-2022 school year with back to school encouragement cards.
