MORRISTOWN, NJ - 6 Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Morris and Sussex Counties have joined the #GivngTuesday movement, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. 

In preparing to celebrate its 30th Anniversary year, CASA of Morris and Sussex Counties is looking to support 30 new children entering foster care. 

Occurring this year on November 29th, #GivingTuesday is held annually in the United States on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This special day is designated to kick-off the holiday-giving-season and to inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

The goal is to be able to assign 30 new children, entering the system this coming year, to a CASA volunteer. With an average cost of $1,800 per child for one year, we need to raise $54,000 to provide this support.

“As our country comes together and moves forward into a new year we must all remember vulnerable children in our community who need advocates. These children will be the next generation of leaders,” said Lisa Barsky Firkser, Executive Director of CASA.
