Glynco, GA Dec 18, 2006

In the tenth annual event, the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC), partner organizations (POs) and contractors helped to 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 $10,000 for the 82 children enrolled in the program.  These gifts were presented to the CASA volunteers in a ceremony at the FLETC auditorium on December 12.  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.

Linda Fennell, FLETC CASA Coordinator, acknowledged the CASA volunteers and thanked everyone for their generosity, “There are no words that I can say that would make this any better.  Just this morning we had a call about another child in need.  With a single telephone call, we were able to take care of this child’s needs.  Without you, we just couldn’t have met this child’s and all the other’s needs.”

Deputy Director Ken Keene addressed the volunteers, commending them for their willingness to step forward and provide for others – for this event as well as the many other times that FLETC, PO, and the contractors have opened their hearts to those in need.
