August 2019 Media Release Template Now Available

Texas CASA aims to provide regular media release templates that local CASA programs can use to raise awareness for CASA in their communities. These templates focus on specific events or holidays that programs can leverage around recruitment. We are currently in the process of updating all of our past monthly media release templates to be evergreen and in line with our current messaging.

This month’s media release is focused on the back-to-school season. The beginning of school tends to lead to increased reports of child abuse and neglect, creating a heightened need for more CASA volunteers.

NOTE: Be sure to update all highlighted areas  in the templates. Use the DFPS Data Book to pull statewide and local statistics as needed.

Also, consider including a relevant photo when you are submitting the media release to your local media. This stock image, for example, would be a good fit for the back-to-school season. You can also browse our full library of stock photos of children.

If you have any questions, contact the Communications team at [email][/email]. Please also send a link of any coverage you get. Good luck, and stay tuned for updated templates for the rest of the year!
