YOUTH PROTECTION/ CASEY'S KIDS -Amy Lindeman
Casey’s Kids started in 1997 when Janie Casey, a former counselor in Keller ISD, discovered that a student was limiting the number of school days attended per week due to a lack of clothing. It was this student’s need that led to Ms. Casey’s mission to find a way to fund the clothing needs of students in need district-wide. Named in Janie’s honor, the Casey’s Kids Fun Run began as an effort to provide clothing and has now expanded to include other items such as school supplies and household needs. All funds raised through sponsorship and event registrations are distributed to these families in need by KISD counselors. This year we have expanded even further by partnering with the Keller ISD Health Expo to increase awareness of Casey’s Kids and healthy choices, as well as to provide various free health screenings and information to our district.
