Magic Valley employees raise $7,000 for CASA of Hidalgo, Cameron and Willacy Counties.

Magic Valley employees presented checks in the amount of $3,500 to CASA of Hidalgo and $3,500 to CASA of Cameron and Willacy Counties.   

This funding will help the Hidalgo, Cameron and Willacy county-based programs continue training dedicated volunteers, increase the number of volunteers trained each year, and ensure that 100 percent of children placed into foster care in the Rio Grande Valley have a voice. 

“The mission of CASA of Hidalgo County is to provide trained and supervised volunteers to speak for the best interest of abused and neglected children who are involved in the child welfare system,” said Veronica Whitacre, Executive Director of CASA of Hidalgo County.  “Our mission is to assist in finding a permanent, safe and loving home for each of these children as soon as possible.”  

Each year, MVEC employees get the chance to vote on deserving nonprofits that they would like to support through the employee fundraising committee.  Magic Valley employees then raise money through various fundraising activities throughout the year.  This allows employees to directly support those organizations that are near and dear to them.     

Even just being part of the nominating process was an honor, explained CASA of Cameron and Willacy Counties Executive Director Dora Martinez. “We work really hard to apply for grants and raise funds, so every dollar is vital and will help us tremendously to provide stable and vital resources to children in need.” 

“It takes a dedicated group of employees to make this happen,” said John Herrera, Magic Valley’s General Manager. “With the committee’s help we are able to live up to the cooperative principle, Concern for Community.”
