CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Northwest Arkansas is pleased to be the recipient of a grant from The Bank of America Charitable Foundation, Inc. in the amount of $3,000 in support of the CASA mission of serving every abused and neglected child in NWA by 2020.
Each year, hundreds of children in Northwest Arkansas are abused or neglected. CASA of NWA trains and supports community volunteers who serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates for children in the foster care system, with the goal of moving each child to a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.
CASA was presented a check on May 22nd at the Springdale Bank of America Banking Center. “Bank of America is lending, investing and giving in local communities like Northwest Arkansas in order to advance local economies and create positive change,” said Judy Butterweck, Bank of America Banking Center Manager at the Sunset West Banking Center. “Providing support to organizations like CASA of Northwest Arkansas Inc. is just one of the ways Bank of America is helping to improve the quality of life in our community.”
