CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) has teamed up with Avon for a special fund-raiser. The group is selling Sparky the puppy, an adorable, super-cuddly stuffed animal that is sure to warm the hearts of those who would like to make a difference in a child's life. The cost of the puppy is $16.99 and $8.50 of that benefits CASA. You can choose to keep Sparky and give him as a gift or you can donate the puppy to CASA to be used as a Christmas gift for the children CASA serves. Your donation is tax deductible. Help support a worthy cause and put a smile on a child's face this holiday season. For more information, call Cristie Campbell, program director at CASA, at 254-965-6610 or come by the office located at 221 East McNeill Street.
