Program Speaker: Children's Advocacy Center (CAC)
Lisa Rizzio from CAC and also one of our club members joined us tonight and provided updates about their agency. The majority of their staff are working remotely and all services up and running. The Child Protection team is doing sessions with children and families with visual appointments. They manage the East United Way house on Palm Beach Blvd. and the pantry is quite busy distributing food, other supplies and linking families to resources. Lisa said although child abuse reports are down keep in mind most of the referrals come from schools and they are not in session.
The Bling & Bags Bingo is still on for June 24th however due to safety precautions it will be held virtually. A live auction will take place with chances to win bags and other prizes. All club members received an update on this event via email with additional details. Our club is a Gold sponsor of this event and we support them throughout the year through volunteerism and in other ways.
If you suspect or know a child is being abused call the Abuse Hotline 800-962-2873.
