Every December, each employee of 212 Media Studios receives a second Christmas bonus with instructions to donate it to a non-profit of his or her choice. Why? Because supporting our community and helping others is part of our ethos. In fact, this opportunity to give back has become a favorite holiday tradition in our office.
Office Manager Melissa Katip is donating her Christmas bonus to CASA of Kosciusko County. “My family has been involved in foster care work for as long as I can remember, and I have gained three siblings through that work and adoption,” shares Melissa. CASA advocates for and protects abused or neglected children in the court system, ensuring that qualified, compassionate people protect each child’s right to be safe, treated respectfully, and to thrive in a loving family.
“We have seen the pain and hardships so many kids go through, often without anyone to advocate for and love on them. This is just a small way I can help provide that for a child.” Those at CASA believe “all children deserve the right to grow up in a safe and nurturing home,” CASA’s staff members work to ensure this happens.
