Thank you to KNOP for running a story on Lincoln County CASA's new program! Operation Suitcase is a program that will provide a new travel bag for children from birth through age 19 who are being removed from the home due to abuse or neglect. The travel bags are filled with hygiene items such as shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant and hairbrush and accessories, toys, and activity books. Lincoln County CASA was awarded $5,000 from VOCA (Victim of Crimes Act overseen by the Nebraska Crime Commission) for this project. Lincoln County CASA will be able to hand out approximately 66 bags with this money.
