News / Douglas County CASA is chosen as UNB’s First Quarter Giving Program Charity
Thursday, April 24, 2014
Every year in Douglas County, dozens of children are removed from their homes and placed under court protection for their own safety. They are confused and frightened of an uncertain future. Many are placed in foster care. Douglas County CASA is dedicated to making sure these children get the attention they deserve. With the help of specially trained volunteers who advocate for the best interests of these vulnerable children, CASA helps children and teens find safe, permanent and loving homes. For more information about CASA of Douglas County, or to become involved, visit them here.
About The University National Bank’s Quarterly Giving Program: Each quarter, UNB selects a local charity they wish to support. Throughout the quarter, a community bulletin board displays information about the charity and UNB employees collect donations from customers and community members. In addition, UNB staff contributes donations by hosting several “Jeans Days.” At the end of the quarter, a check for the lump sum of the donations is presented to the charity and the members of the organization have the opportunity to tell the staff more about its efforts, goals, and additional philanthropic opportunities.
