Legal Aid raises record amount for abused children

Maryland Legal Aid’s Child Advocacy Unit in Baltimore (which represents abused and neglected children in the foster care system) raised a record amount of money this year–$5,125, nearly $1,000 more than last year–for its Holiday Giving Program, reported Legal Aid social worker Meira Shapiro. “We bought $40 gift food cards for 121 children in 50-some families,” said Shapiro, who managed the program. “We also bought additional things as needed to supplement families sponsored by Legal Aid employees, as well as giving gift food cards to families with last- minute emergencies.”
