Balbo accepted the donation on behalf of the Bryan County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Organization.

The Exchange Club of Richmond Hill recently donated 14 “Time-out Teddies” the Bryan County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Organization during its regular club meeting held Jan. 23.

The CASA organization works to provide children with a CASA volunteer, who acts as a "voice in court" for abused and neglected children. These volunteers help give judges detailed information they need to safeguard the children's best interests and ensure that they are placed in safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible.

“The Exchange Club of Richmond Hill is proud to assist Bryan County CASA in this small way to help them deliver much-needed service to the deserving  children of our county,” said club member Lynn Bennett.

On hand to make the presentation were club President Janet Thayer and club Vice President Chet Gregg. Accepting the teddies was Christy Balbo, local attorney, CASA volunteer and child-advocate.
