FLETC Collects Gifts for CASA’s ChildrenGlynco, GA Dec 13, 2005
The FLETC and its Partner Organizations are helping provide a Christmas for area children who are part of the Court Appointed Advocates (CASA) program.
Employees purchased and wrapped hundreds of gifts worth approximately $15,000 for the 115 children enrolled in the program.
The gifts were presented to the CASA volunteers in a ceremony at the FLETC auditorium.
"Team members from FLETC and our Partner Organizations have been very generous this year," said Connie Patrick, Director of FLETC. "I am glad that we are able to provide these children with a little of the Christmas joy that every child should be able to experience. It warms my heart to see just how giving our people are at this special time of the year."
FLETC organizes this event every year. Gracious team members have sponsored more than 700 children since 1999. The CASA is a non-profit organization of volunteers, who are assigned by the court as a child’s advocate in cases of abuse or neglect.
