"My parents were involved as CAS volunteers for
over 30 years, so I actually volunteered with CAS as a child and teen helping with the
annual Holiday Heroes program."
"I recognize the importance of helping others in our community. I
wanted to continue volunteering with CAS as it is a wonderful organization and supports
so many children."
"Volunteering is not only fun - it's rewarding. Being involved gives me the
opportunity to be a friend, mentor, and support to a child and their parent/guardian.
I have become close to children and families I have volunteered with, and I look forward
to volunteering each week. I know that these opportunities not only enrich my life, but
also the children I volunteer with."
Deanna has volunteered with York Region CAS since 2000 as a big buddy,
homework club volunteer and she helps with special events.
