For Immediate Release
December 17, 2014
Sunflower CASA (Court-Appointed Special Advocates) and Manhattan Catholic Schools have teamed up with the Riley County Police Department for a project to provide clothing to children who are placed into protective custody. In the past, RCPD has kept bags with 2 outfits, one set of PJ’s, underwear and socks for children that come into protective custody and often leave their home without any clothing. These kids are victims of abuse and neglect and eventually end up in the care of CASA once their court cases have started. Currently, the RCPD is out of items to distribute to these children but will be receiving the clothing that was collected by Sunflower CASA Project and Manhattan Catholic Schools on Thursday, December 18th at 1 pm. Media is encourage to attend.
