I would like to take this opportunity to thank Terri Likens for her front-page column in the Roane County News on Friday Sept. 3 concerning the fine work that is done by CASA.
The timing was serendipitous!
The Tennessee Department of Correction is sponsoring a state-wide Victim Impact Awareness Week Sept. 27 -Oct. 2.
Each correctional facility has been asked to choose a local charity that works, in some fashion, with victims of crime and to raise money for the organization.
Morgan County Correctional Complex chose CASA because of the work that they do with abused and neglected children.
We have had several events since Aug. 11 and have several more events scheduled between now and the end of September.
Hopefully this will not only raise money for a very worthwhile cause, but also raise community awareness surrounding the serious impact that crime has on so many voiceless victims.
I will be contacting Ms. Likens with some additional contact information if any RCN readers would like to help us to make our fund-raising endeavors successful.
