Dear Mr. Butler, Mr. Cooper & staff,
On behalf of CASA of Jackson County, I want to thank Butler Automotive for choosing CASA to receive the very generous donation of $1,250.00 from Rogue Federal Credit Union. We are very grateful for your support of our work to ensure the children we serve reach safe and permanent outcomes.
In 2011, 511 children in Jackson County were represented by CASA volunteers. This is the largest number of volunteers in CASA’s history! None of the children served by CASA experienced re-abuse, their cases moved more quickly, their needs were completely met and all of them had one constant person they could count on – their CASA. Your generous support of CASA advocacy plays a key role in these children’s lives.
Once again, thank you for your thoughtful generosity and for caring enough to help us make a difference.
Warmly,
– – Jennifer Mylenek, Executive Director, CASA of Jackson County

Dear Mr. Butler,
Sorry we didn’t get to meet you in person. Thanks so much for donating the use of a van for the st. Hedwig’s School Auction. But most of all thanks for your courtesy in picking us up at the airport and dropping us off at departure. that took a lot of pressure off of us and made the trip that much more enjoyable. Arriving in a new place, not knowing anyone, makes one very apprehensive. You more than eased that burden.
Although this was our first visit to Ashland, I’m sure it won’t be our last! What a lovely place filled with wonderful people. Please pass on our thanks to Rich who was gracious enough to use part of his Sunday to drop us off. It was very much appreciated.
Sincerely,
– – Ron and Paula D., November 2011

“Dear Butler Ford,
Thank you so much for bidding [on] and buying my pig. I had a wonderful experience raising my pig this year. He was a great pig and he made me smile so many times.
