This week, the Southeast CASA Program in Yankton received a generous donation from USD's Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority from proceeds raised during their "Colors for CASA" 5K fun run/walk. We extend our sincerest thanks to the Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority and those in the Vermillion community who participated in the "Colors for CASA" fun run/walk. What a great event and we are very appreciative of Kappa Alpha Theta's continued efforts to support our program!
CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates. The Southeast CASA Program has been in existence for over one year and we currently have nine trained volunteers and we are actively serving children in the community, who through no fault of their own, are involved in abuse and neglect court proceedings. One of our goals is to expand our services into surrounding communities. Receiving donations from events like the "Colors for CASA" fun run/walk goes a long way to support our mission of providing a voice for children in need and our long-range goal to expand our services.
Again, thanks to the Vermillion community and especially Kappa Alpha Theta for its great work to promote our program and provide needed support.
President, Board of Directors
