DAUPHIN COUNTY, Pa. (WHTM) — On the darkest day of the year, Dauphin County CASA is lighting up the lives of local foster children by revealing their Holiday “Giving Tree” fundraiser that supports advocacy for children in court.
The Dauphin County CASA “Light Up A Foster Child’s Life” raised a total of $12,284. The money raised will support programs for some 400 Dauphin County Children in the foster care system.
“One crucial way we can all bring light to the lives of foster children is to let them know they matter, that we see them and acknowledge their potential to succeed and support them in their journey. And, most importantly, that we care enough to invest our hard-earned money to help build a brighter future for them. That is at the heart of our CASA mission,” said Amy Doherty, DC CASA board member.
CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates; trained volunteers advocate for foster care children in court.
