When a young child has to appear in a courtroom they are usually scared and confused. Thanks to the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Mesa County, children do not have to appear alone or without a friendly adult by their side. CASA is Teaming up with Barnes & Noble Booksellers for a fundraiser to support CASA of Mesa County.

This fundraiser is happening on Friday, March 3, 2017, both at the Barnes & Noble store at the corner of Patterson Road and 24 1/2 Road in Grand Junction and online the week of March 3rd through March 8th online at their bookfair website found here. You just need to enter the CASA bookfair ID of 12093449.

You can help out CASA with their mission and get some new books in the process. Up to 12% of the purchase price for books bought at the store on March 3rd or bought online that week will be donated to CASA of Mesa County. This also includes food and drinks bought at the store's cafe on Friday, March 3rd.

If you would like to become a CASA volunteer, you can get information and even take the online orientation at the website. You can also get more information by calling them at 970-242-4191 or email info@casamc.org.
