The Freelin-Wade FORCE is announcing their 2016 fundraising partnership with CASA of Yamhill County. The goal of the partnership is to raise funds for these Court Appointed Special Advocates and to spread awareness of their mission.
Annually, the Freelin-Wade FORCE designs, organizes and launches fundraising and educational activities for a chosen local nonprofit. The nonprofit is selected by popular employee vote and is supported by employee volunteer work and donations. 100% of all proceeds from the 2016 fundraising year will go to our local CASA.
The mission of Yamhill County CASA is to speak up for the best interests of abused and neglected children who are under the jurisdiction of the courts. Legally, this means the CASA is appointed a party to the case. In practice this means the CASA volunteer is advocating for the child’s best interests in court, in school, in health, etc. According to a national study, foster children with a CASA generally have fewer placements, receive more services, and have better educational outcomes.
The Freelin-Wade FORCE is pleased to support CASA’s mission. Event information flyers will be posted throughout the community, the News Register, and the Freelin-Wade Force Facebook page (www.facebook.com/freelinwadeforce). We also invite you to sign up to receive notifications by contacting RachelR@freelin-wade.com.
