Carol BaumgardtVOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT

This week's volunteer spotlight is shining on Carol Baumgardt! Not only is she a fantastic CASA, working towards a better outcome for her foster kids, but she has been extremely supportive of our fundraising efforts. Carol is always on top of her case, constantly calling and visiting her foster kids. She goes above and beyond for her case and for us as well! She brought in numerous items for our silent auction, helping us make Casas for CASA a success. Thank you Carol!!

It's getting closer! Take a look at the first playhouse to be completed by Balfour Beatty Communities. We are going to have 4 other playhouses PLUS an airplane simulator that has been converted into a plane playhouse.

Balfour Beatty Communities has also been generous enough to donate their time to help us convert this airplane simulator into another playhouse! It is a one of a kind item and we couldn't have done it without them.simulator Here's a picture of them hard at work!
