Mac McKenzie for Piedmont CASA
Mac McKenzie is a senior at Commerce High School and is the epitome of a well rounded student. He loves math, is an avid athlete, and loves to sing. Somehow he is going to find time to help CASA help the children!
The purpose of Piedmont CASA is to recruit, train, and support community volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children in the court system. Just in this last quarter, 61 trained Piedmont CASA volunteers were assigned to 111 children who were in foster care. It costs over $250 to train a volunteer and approximately $750 a year to serve one child. The money raised by participating in Jackson County’s Got Talent will help fund this much needed service.
