Founded in 2005, the Ambassadors Behind CASA (ABCs) is a membership organization of volunteers whose purpose is to provide service to the Clayton County CASA Program as a partner to The Friends of Clayton County CASA, Inc. by increasing community awareness of CASA, supporting, developing, and implementing fundraising initiatives, and sponsoring activities for the children advocated for by CASA.
Current ABC Members:
- Jane Glaze, ABC Chairperson
- Aron Johannsen
- Valarie Gordon
- Donna Kinney
- Twana Hudson
- Rodney McDaniel
Over the past several years, the Ambassadors Behind CASA have sponsored several successful events for children in relative and foster care. One of their first events, an Easter Egg Hunt and Party, was held at Battleground Park in Jonesboro, GA. Previously, the ABCs have also been successful with their Darlin’ Duck Derby Pageant. Boys and girls from the community are invited to participate. It is amazing to see their talent, beauty, and courage as they walk across the stage in front of the crowd present.Currently, the ABCs, partnered with Chairman Jeff Turner, sponsor an annual Holiday toy drive to make certain that children in relative and foster care receive gifts.
The Ambassadors Behind CASA is a growing organization, and they are always looking for interested members from the community to volunteer their time in working with youth. If you are interested in providing assistance to the ABCs, contact Jane Glaze, ABC Chairperson at 770-314-9003.
Hats off to the ABCs for jobs well done on behalf of children!!
