Laurel area offers a variety of volunteer jobs
Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) — CASA/Prince George's County offers the opportunity to help abused or abandoned children in the community. An information session for volunteers will be held Wednesday, March 6, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at Local 400 Union Hall, 4301 Garden City Drive, in Landover. CASA recruits and trains volunteers ages 21 and over to advocate for the needs of children living in foster care. Volunteers spend about 12 hours per month visiting with a child and collaborate with other adults who are protecting the child to ensure his or her needs are met and a safe permanent home is found. CASA is currently accepting applications for spring evening training. For information, call 301-209-0491 or go to http://www.pgcasa.org.
