April is child abuse prevention month. A great new tradition to go along with that is the free ice cream offerings at Ben & Jerry’s two locations (The District at Green Valley Ranch & Sunset Station Hotel & Casino) on April 10 from noon to 8 p.m. Donations made at the event benefit the CASA Foundation.
The CASA program recruits, screens, trains and supports volunteers to represent the best interests of hundreds of foster children annually. The advocates represent the children in school, child and family team meetings, and in court.
For those interested in volunteering with CASA, monthly orientations are held on the third Wednesday of each month to provide more information about the program. Upcoming orientations will be held at the Government Center, 500 S. Grand Central Pkwy. For more information about the program please call 702-455-4306, visit WWW.CASALASVEGAS.ORG or Facebook at WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/#!/CASALASVEGAS.
