BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) – CASA of south-central Kentucky received several large donations from some large groups at Bowling Green Thursday.
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) provides support, advocacy and intervention for abused, neglected and dependent children in the foster care and family justice systems of South Central KY.
Board members of the local non-profit organization accepted the donations through a check presentation. Initially, the Bowling Green Rotary Club donated $ 1,100 to CASA.
The Rotary club donated $ 10,000 from its Rotary Flags for Kids program to child-centric nonprofits in Bowling Green.
Rotary member Gayla Warner said they decided to donate to CASA as one of the organizations because the organization faced many technical challenges in training volunteers during the pandemic.
“They couldn’t get personal training like they had in the past, and this electronic equipment would really make it easier for them. In addition, all of our donations go to children’s charities, ”she said.
A neighborhood or individual can join the Rotary Flags for Kids program by emailing [email protected].
In addition, the Bowling Green Bourbon Group donated just over $ 3,300 to CASA of South Central Kentucky, which they raised in a raffle. The local group also donated to Stuff The Bus.
“We’d like to thank the Bowling Green Rotary Club and Bowling Green Bourbon Group for including CASA in their initiatives to give back this year. These funds will help us to help more abused and neglected children in our region, ”said Jana Sublett, General Manager of CASA Southcentral KY.
