Region – The Webster Five Foundation announced that, as part of its Web of Caring to Make a Difference program, it will donate $5,000 to the CASA Project, Inc. The donation will support recruiting, training and supervising court-appointed volunteer guardians for children in need throughout Worcester County.
“We value the support that CASA is lending to the children in our community,” Webster Five President and CEO Richard T. Leahy said. “Webster Five is honored to support their goal to help these children who cannot help themselves.”
CASA’s primary goal is to help each child find a safe and permanent home as quickly as possible. Its secondary goal is to advocate for needed medical, behavioral, and mental health services while a child is in litigation. Webster Five’s donation will support the ongoing expansion of the CASA Project’s Child Court Advocacy program.
“We are extremely grateful for Webster Five’s donation to increase our volunteers, thereby serving more of the neediest children in our community,” CASA Project Director Sue Ellen Scrogin said.
