The Dalles For the kids
To the editor:
One of my life missions is to make a difference in the lives of children and young adults. Here in the gorge, so many children are struggling and I wish I could fill all of their needs. Every child deserves a safe, loving and permanent home.
One important way I do help children is by serving on the board of directors for Columbia Gorge CASA. CASA advocates make a huge difference in the lives of children in foster care and the passion that the advocates and staff have for these kids is an inspiration. I am also proud to be a part of this wonderful organization.
As a board member, I help to maintain a thriving organization so that we can recruit and support enough volunteers so every child in foster care can have a CASA advocating on their behalf. Our whole community benefits from these efforts.
CASA is looking for a few engaged and committed individuals to join the board and I passionately encourage others in my community to consider this opportunity. By giving just a few hours of your time and talent per month, you can help make a difference in the lives of foster kids. Applications are available at www.gorgecasa.org or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
