Holiday Giving Program reaches goal

Maryland Legal Aid’s  Holiday Giving Program of 2009 was another success, reported Baltimore Child Advocacy Unit chief attorney Joan Little. Each year, the program raises money for clients–abused and neglected children in foster care represented by Legal Aid–and their families. “More than 20 Legal Aid volunteers assisted in sponsoring children, raising funding for the program, shopping for children, wrapping presents, and delivering presents,” Little said. “The program served 70 families and 131 children. It raised over $4,800 and most of that money went to the provision of gift cards for food for each family in need.”
