Behind the direct interaction of our child advocates is a dedicated auxiliary group called Friends of CASA that supports the administrative and operational responsibilities of our program. Friends of CASA is involved with organizing and staffing a variety of fundraising, volunteer appreciation and community awareness events where their help is needed.
Joining Friends gives you the flexibility in choosing when and how often you want to volunteer. Any gifts of time and skills are greatly appreciated. Friends members receive monthly communication of upcoming events where their help is needed.
How do the Friends of CASA help to make a difference?
The Friends have a direct impact on the children served by CASA of Forsyth County, Inc. in three distinct ways:
Friends of CASA host and participate in several fundraising activities, providing critical volunteer support at CASA of Forsyth County, Inc. events.
Friends of CASA locate thousands of dollars of in-kind donations annually to help serve the children that CASA represents.
Friends of CASA also chair and coordinate many other projects annually:
- During our Backpack Drive school supplies are collected so our children have the tools they need to succeed as a student.
- Our Holiday Stocking Project provides a stocking for each of the children CASA serves.
- With the organization of our annual CASA Children’s Holiday Party – by Friends of CASA – our children enjoy a festive, kid friendly environment while receiving holiday gifts.
- Friends of CASA recognizes the dedication of individuals who make a positive impact on children in our community during our annual Light of Hope event in April (Child Abuse Awareness Month).
