Make the holidays brighter for a local child: Our local CASA organziation (Court Appointed Special Advocates for children) is currently serving 160 Hancock County children in foster care. Fifty of those children have turned in Christmas wish lists to their CASA volunteers.
Individuals and businesses interested in "adopting" one of those 50 children and filling their wish list can stop by the CASA office. 412 Hwy 90 Suite 3.
Unwrapped gifts need to be returned to the CASA office by December 1.
In addition, sponsors are needed for the annual Children's Christmas Party organized by CASA partnering with the county Youth Court. About 200 children attend the mid-December event, which includes Santa, games, and food. Individuals and businesses can sign up by calling CASA at 228-344-0419 or the Youth Court at 228-467-4728.
