Make an impact in the life of a child

Make a major impact in the life of a child who needs a chance for a safe and permanent home. On Tuesday, Dec. 10, at 6 p.m. CASA of Central Virginia will hold an hour-long video/slide presentation about the role and responsibilities of a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for abused and neglected children, and how to become one.

A question and answer period will be led by a veteran CASA who will answer questions about what to expect in this unique and rewarding volunteer role.

Applications are now being accepted for the winter training class which begins Feb. 5. The cutoff date to apply for the upcoming class is Dec. 16.

The event will be held at 1303 W. Third St., Farmville. Participants are asked to arrive 10-15 minutes early, as the program will begin promptly at 6 p.m. Refreshments will also be provided.

For more information call (434) 485-7262 or email volunteer@cvcasa.org.
