Join the Extra Mile Club
CASA volunteers have served thousands of children from Santa Fe, Rio Arriba and Los Alamos counties since 1995, covering over 8000 square miles of northern New Mexico. Our volunteers go the extra-mile for the children in their cases—which often means traveling miles out of their way. Annually our volunteers travel over 29,000 miles in their duty to the court and the abused and neglected children of our community. However, the price of gasoline has at times proven to be a financial impediment to meeting the travel demands placed on CASA volunteers.
To this end, gas companies and individuals around the state of New Mexico are asked to consider a donation of gas cards with a value of at least $25 each.
