Menominee, Mich. – CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Menominee County has received an $850 grant from the Plum Creek Foundation to help fund the purchase of a new computer and printer for the organization.
According to Joy Johnson, CASA Program Coordinator, CASA of Menominee County recruits, screens, trains, monitors and supports volunteers who advocate for children who come before the local Family Court due to abuse or neglect allegations.
The mission of the Plum Creek Foundation is to provide philanthropic contributions to support and improve the general welfare of life in the communities that Plum Creek serves.
“The support provided by the Plum Creek Foundation is greatly appreciated by our organization,” said Johnson.  “The new computer and printer will give CASA the technical ability needed to achieve its mission to provide quality volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children involved with family court to assure each child a safe, permanent, and nurturing home for years to come.”
