Here at Russell Alexander Collaborative Family Lawyers, we are holding our third annual holiday toy drive through December 10, but virtually this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“As a family law firm, we work hard to ensure the best outcomes for the children involved in our cases every day,” said Russ. “When it comes to the holiday season, we want to make sure that no other child is forgotten.”
This year, the drive will support Simcoe Hall Settlement House in Oshawa, a nonprofit started in 1935 that runs a food bank and programs to serve school-aged children and seniors.
Our team has pledged to take 50 percent of initial consultation fees booked between November 10 and December 10 and use the funds to purchase toys online, which will be delivered directly to Simcoe Hall.
Since starting in 2018, the toy drive has also helped charities in the Durham Region and the city of Kawartha Lakes.
“The coronavirus pandemic is going to make this a hard winter for many children,” added Russ. “We hope this toy drive can make things a little more bearable.”
