A boy needing a winter coat; a girl who has never had a doll to love; a single mom who wants to give her eight children Christmas presents; a family that desperately wants to purchase a sensory swing for their autistic child. They were all helped by local individuals and businesses who generously donated gifts and raised money to help those in need this past holiday season.

Thanks to the staff and patrons of Educators Credit Union (ECU), East Point Sportz Pub and 107.3 WSJY, as well as a few individual families, CASA of Rock County was able to purchase wants and needs for all the children served by our advocates. The donations were so generous that funds remain and are being used throughout the year for special purchases for the children and to fund the volunteer advocates taking the children on outings.

CASA of Rock County provides advocacy services to children who are in the court system due to abuse or neglect. Donations given to the program allow these children to share in life experiences that may otherwise be out of their reach. Thank you from the children and the advocates who give them a voice!
