Here at Valley Office Systems, we like to help you win at business, but what about you who aren't running a business? It's important to us to help non-profit organizations where we can. We recently partnered with CASA, a support system of trained advocates for child victims of abuse and neglect. CASA has been doing truly uplifting work, helping children in court to protect themselves, and finding a new forever home for them. We believe this is one of those organizations that truly goes above and beyond the expected to make the fabric of our community a better place, and we could think of no better people to support than them.
