Andrea Rein from CASA and Kate Batt from HHS join Kevin Mooney on KNEB's News Extra program Monday morning.
They are on to talk about their "Togeter We Rise" fundraiser with a
goal of helping 150 kids being removed from homes a fresh start with a
bag of their own.
Because no child should have to move their belongings in a trash bag
Every day in this country, 1,900 children become victims of abuse or
neglect, and four of them will die. Being removed from your home is a
scary and traumatic transition for a child, especially if they just saw
their parents being arrested. They are being taken away from everything
they knew and are heading towards something so very unfamiliar.
Children are given 2 trash bags when they are removed from their home to
place their belongings in. These children are just like every other
child. They deserve to be loved. They deserve to have something special
to treasure. They shouldn't be written off just because they are in the
To highlight that April is Child Abuse Awareness month,
CASA of Scotts Bluff County has chosen to partner up with Together We
Rise to provide caseworkers a duffel bag to take with them during a
child's removal from their home. The bags are called "Sweet Cases" and
are filled with a warm blanket, some coloring supplies, hygiene kit, and
a stuffed animal to keep by their side in this time of need.
Together We Rise works to bring positive change to these children's
lives through direct interactions. Our goal is to not only bring some
normalcy into their lives, but also to show these children that they are
valued in the community.
OUR GOAL: 150 Sweet Cases x $25 each = $3,750
If we reach our goal, we’ll be hosting a Sweet Case get-together to
decorate and fill these awesome bags. If you would like to donate, you
can join us for our Sweet Case Day, but there’s no obligation if you
can’t attend. We’ll fill and decorate your Sweet Case for you.
Please consider submitting a $25 donation to sponsor your own Sweet Case
so that another child can have a safe place to store their things, no
matter where their journey takes them next.
If you have any
questions or want to become more involved with volunteer efforts within
the area, feel free to contact CASA at firstname.lastname@example.org or
