Nicole’s son Rhett is involved with a great organization at his high school called Legacy Club. The tagline for this club is athletes committed to excellence.

Rhett is helping his soccer coach with a gift card drive for CASA of McHenry County. While they are doing an in-person drive on October 6, Rhett wanted to reach out to his travel sports teams in McHenry County, and provide a digital way to purchase the gift cards.

Linda and Nicole wanted to help facilitate this project with Rhett, and so together, they all created a temporary page on this website where they could use a PayPal account and help Rhett accomplish his goal. 

CASA of McHenry County is a remarkable not-for-profit organization.  CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate. CASA trains volunteers to advocate in court for abused and neglected children. These trained Advocates then get appointed by the court  to be paired with a child during the child’s court case. The Advocate has a one-to-one relationship with the child throughout the case, and meets with the child twice per month.

This fundraiser is specifically targeting teens from age 13 – 21.  The teens are often the ones most forgotten in the foster care system and always appreciate a gift like this when their CASA Advocate visits them!

Visit the CASA of McHenry County website for more information, or to donate.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of McHenry County is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization and your donation is tax-deductible within the guidelines of U.S. law.
