Casual for a Cause started several years back when the Susan G. Korman Breast Cancer was raising funds. If you donated to the cause, you got to dress in denim the last Friday of the month. It proved to be such a hit that a committee of staff and attorneys was formed to pick local charities who did not receive federal funding and served a cross-section of the community.
Our March Casual For A Cause is Sophie’s Circle Pet Food Pantry. Sophie’s Circle is dedicated to providing pet food to financially challenged families in an ongoing effort to keep pets in their homes, along with educating the public on the importance of spaying and neutering cats and dogs and working to keep the feral problem to a minimum. Serving both East Volusia (through the South Daytona Pantry) and West Volusia County (through the Orange City Pantry) Sophie’s Circle is a valuable asset to this community keeping pets out of shelters and in loving families where they are loved and cherished.
