Looking to make a difference in your local community that has a positive impact on behalf of children in need? Consider donating your time or money to the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) program, a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization.
Unfortunately, the number of children who need assistance because of abuse or neglect continues to increase.
When you make a financial contribution, you are helping train and support volunteer advocates who protect the best interests of children who have been abused or neglected. These individuals work tirelessly on the behalf of children in Ogle, Lee and Carroll counties.
Your involvement could light the darkness for a child. Please consider becoming involved by either volunteering or making a financial contribution and make 2019 a better year for children who need your help.
For more information, visit casa15thdistrict.org or call Trisha Morrow, executive director, at 815-222-6780.
Note to readers: Julie Mann is board president of the Court Appointed Special Advocates program in the 15th Judicial Circuit.
