The Center Against Sexual and Domestic Abuse received a $3,500 grant award from the Green Bay Packer Foundation.
The grant will be used to purchase new furnishings, specifically appliances for the new CASDA emergency shelter scheduled to open in early April.
The Green Bay Packers Foundation has awarded $450,000 to 145 civic and charitable groups throughout the state of Wisconsin. The number of recipients and the total donation amount are records for the Foundation. Packers president and chief executive officer Mark Murphy recognized this year’s recipients. CASDA’s Executive Director, Kelly Burger and Assistant Director, Erika Leif were awarded their grant during a luncheon at Lambeau Field.
In addition to the $3,500 CASDA has secured over $1,050,000 for their “New Beginnings” campaign thanks to the generous donations from individuals and businesses within the community. Once open, the shelter will be able to house ten families at a time. Because of this, there is still a need to secure new furnishings.
