CASA of The Tennessee Valley and Mid-East Community Action Agency received a donation of $50,000 to help support their missions of supporting children in need.

According to Kids Count Data Center, there were more than 1,200 cases of reported abuse in Bradley and Polk counties last year, and CASA currently serves nearly 400 children each year.

Leigh Ann Agee, the lead artist, and students from ETSU volunteered their time to create a mural. The project was made possible through a grant and donations from local businesses. The mural, which spans over 1,700 square feet, required 12 gallons of paint. It features the powerful message “Every Child Deserves A Chance.”
