Supporters flock to support CASA

Gainesville — CASA of North Texas is set to launch “Flocked for CASA,” a community effort to raise money to assist the nonprofit agency in providing advocates for abused and neglected children.  CASA supporters pay to ensure that a flock of decorated pink flamingoes won’t end up on their lawns or in buckets placed in their offices.  

They may also pay to have the birds placed in their friends’ lawns or offices for a day.  More than 200 of the pink creations are on display on the lawn of First State Bank. FSB is a strong supporter of CASA’s Advocacy for the children.  

The flock for offices is displayed on the first floor of the Cooke County Courthouse.

“The flocks will ‘fly’ to local lawns and offices starting on April 7,” said CASA Board Member Carla Waters, who has led the planning for the flocks.  “Anyone who is interested in flocking their friends’ lawns ($50) or offices ($25) may contact the CASA office at 940-665-2244.  To prevent being the unexpected recipient of a flock, one can purchase anti-flocking insurance for $25.”

This fundraiser is timed to occur during National Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness month, set in April.  

In 2013, CASA provided advocacy for 137 children who needed protective foster care.
