Mena Emblem Club made a donation to the CASA organization. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) is an organization that gives support to children placed in the Foster Care program. Drug Awareness chairman Judy Broyles explains, “Many of these cases have the root cause as drug abuse. We would like to commend the CASA program for always providing a voice for the child who has to suffer because their parents are not living up to the responsibility that parenting takes.”
CASA volunteers attend classes and get certification to participate in the program. “They, like the Emblem Club, can always use more members,” said Broyles.
Also this week, the Mena Emblem Club was on hand at Mena City Hall for Mena Mayor George McKee to sign a Proclamation declaring October 26 through October 30 as Drug Awareness Week in Mena.
