Separated from family and siblings, the holiday season can be a difficult and lonely time for the abused, neglected and abandoned children represented by our program. Despite their circumstances and heartbreaking stories, these children and youth still anticipate the season like any other child and teen.
Run by our nonprofit partner Guardian ad Litem Foundation Second Circuit, Inc., the annual holiday gift drive ensures that all children and youth represented by our program are able to receive some gifts this holiday season.
You can learn all about the drive and how to participate by visiting gal2.org/gift today.
In keeping with their annual tradition, members of community supporter Tallahassee Barristers Association recently stopped by our office with donations in hand. Just in time for Thanksgiving, the attorneys brought twenty turkeys and baskets filled with food for those families represented by our program in need this season.
We are thankful to the Tallahassee Barristers Association and our other community supporters for everything they do for children in our community.
