LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The glimmer and glow of a special Christmas tree is set to be unveiled at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday inside the Chase Tower Lobby located on East Main Street.
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and McBrayer law have teamed up for
the annual CASA Angel Tree campaign to collect gifts for abused and neglected children.
The public is invited to attend the kick-off event for to learn about the services provided by CASA volunteer advocates and the hope the CASA Angel Tree brings to hundreds of children during the holiday season.
Attendees are encouraged to select an envelope from the tree. Each envelope will include information on a child’s needs and a “wish list.” If you are unable to attend the event and would like to participate, contact the CASA of Lexington office HERE or by calling 859-246-4313.
The CASA Angel Tree allows participants to choose a child in need and receive a list of requested items and clothing sizes to provide the perfect gift for that child. Families often choose children the same age as their own children, making the selection of gifts a family tradition during the holiday season.
CASA’s mission is to provide abused and neglected children with the powerful voice of their very own CASA volunteer.
CASA is currently seeking individuals interested in becoming volunteers and providing advocacy for children. The next training will begin in January 2020.
