The name may have changed – but the company continues to invest to protect the innocent.

PotlatchDeltic signed on as a major sponsor for the St. Maries-Benewah County CASA luncheon, March 13.

“We can’t say enough how much this support means to the success of this event,” Dan Hammes, who helps organize the event, said. “PotlatchDeltic underwrites the entire cost of the lunch, which means everything we raise goes directly to help children.”

While this is the first year PotlatchDeltic has sponsored the event under its new moniker, the 2019 event marks the sixth consecutive year the timber company has underwritten this fundraiser. PotlatchDeltic, formerly Potlach, changed its name last year following a merger.

The luncheon is the major fundraiser for CASA in Benewah County. The organization serves children who suffer from abuse and neglect throughout northern Idaho.

The March 13 event will include a short program detailing the work of volunteers who serve with CASA. In addition to the presentation, attendees are invited to support CASA and its efforts.

“We have enjoyed tremendous support for CASA here in Benewah County. Not only are local businesses big boosters of this effort but several individuals in the area given generous donations,” Mr. Hammes said. “Sometime next week we will start soliciting support.”

The local event is one of several fundraisers throughout the Panhandle that support CASA.

“Given our size, the St. Maries event has always been among the most successful. We hope to match that effort again this year,” Mr. Hammes said.
