AFA Colleagues Support CASA of Oklahoma County

March 25, 2015 04:34 AM
Chari-teeDay On Friday, I will join other Colleagues in wearing a T-shirt to show support for this month’s featured charity, CASA of Oklahoma County. The mission of Court Appointed Special Advocates of Oklahoma County is to provide trained court-appointed volunteers who advocate for the best interest of abused and neglected children in the Oklahoma County juvenile court system. The advocates work to ensure the best interests of the children are met and that the children receive all the services they need from the Oklahoma Department of Human Services. They ensure the children’s voices are heard in court, at school and in the community. In 2013, more than 11,000 children were living in foster homes in Oklahoma; more than one third of those in Oklahoma County. About 200 volunteer advocates represent more than 700 children each year. Still, many children in Oklahoma County face their court cases without an advocate looking out for their best interests. Learn more about the organization from its website. I’m so proud to work for a Company and with fellow Colleagues who actively work to improve the quality of life in our community. Individually, we don’t have to donate a large amount, but collectively, we can have a huge impact! How important is it to you to work for a Company that supports charitable causes? In what ways does your Company contribute to the community? &
