CANTON (KYTX)- CASA of East Texas is opening a new Van Zandt County office to facilitate work with abused and neglected children.
A come and go event will be held Tuesday, July 8 from 1-3 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, Fellowship Hall, 600 S. Buffalo St. in Canton.
Last year, 13 CASA for Kids of East Texas volunteer advocates spoke for 83 abused and neglected children in Van Zandt County.
"At least 15 more volunteers are needed in Wood County," said Patty Garner, CASA of East Texas Executive Director. "This open house is a great opportunity for the public to learn more about how they can get involved in this vital work."
