So Many Children of Kent County Need Our Help

Dear 100.5 River listeners and web blog readers,

Some of you may know that I sit on the board of directors of CASA, Court Appointed Special Advocate.  It is near and dear to my heart, as children are near and dear to me.  But, it breaks my heart that so many have such a tumultuous life.  That is why I serve.  My dream would be that all children would have a safe, loving and fullfilling life.  But that just isn't the case for those that CASA serves.
