Volunteer of the Month

April - Peg Wittmeier

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Unfortunately, in Yankton County last year, the Southeast CASA Program saw a drastic increase in the number of children who were affected by abuse or neglect. Fortunately, our community is filled with passionate volunteers who are invested in better outcomes for local children.

Southeast CASA and United Way Big Friend Little Friend Volunteer, Peg Wittmeier, was awarded the United Way & Volunteer Services’ Volunteer of the Month award; in honor of her countless hours and energy dedicated to protecting the best interests of children in our community. Southeast CASA Case Manager, Crystal Gemar, who nominated Wittmeier for the award states, “Peg is a selfless individual, who has a huge heart and wants what is best for others, her commitment to youth is inspiring.”
