Manhasset CASA’s Upcoming Events


Katherine Peng, Contributing Writer

Manhasset CASA is a non-profit organization that strives to reduce substance abuse among our youth. CASA’s main goal is to reduce underage drinking and drug use by establishing and strengthening collaboration among communities, private nonprofit agencies, and federal, state, and local governments to support the community’s coalition. Red Ribbon Week was a great success this year; elementary students tied red ribbons to trees in order to promote the organization’s movement against substance abuse.

Here are a few upcoming events:teens
