CASA Partners 4NMKIDS would like to express their gratitude to the Rotary Club of Rio Rancho. Our executive director, Ginny Thomas, was invited to speak during the September monthly meeting about the CASA program. We enjoyed lunch with friends then had the opportunity to discuss the obstacles facing children in foster care as well as highlight the benefits of the CASA program.
The culmination of our presentation led to a pledge from the Rotary Club to support as many as 20 children in foster care for our Christmas party. Rotary members will be providing funds for gifts and toys chosen by the children to brighten their holiday. The annual CASA Christmas party is one of our favorite events and would not be possible without the generosity local benefactors like the Rotary Club of Rio Rancho. We thank them for their support of CASA Partners 4NMKIDS and the children in foster care in Sandoval and Valencia counties!
