Have you ever felt that the holidays can be a stressful time? Maybe, but the challenges we face are likely far less than those faced by children in group homes. For them, the holidays can be an especially painful time of year.

That’s why the Young Lawyers Division of the State Bar of Arizona dedicates so much of their time and energy to a holiday party for kids in just such a home. They are hosting a party on December 3, and they need the help of Arizona lawyers. Here’s more information on what you can do.

Holiday Party for Children Residing at Sunshine Residential & Group Homes, Inc.

The celebration of major holidays are often difficult for children in residential care. Please help us make the holidays more enjoyable for the children of Sunshine Residential & Group Homes, Inc. by contributing to, and/or volunteering at, the Maricopa County Young Lawyers’ Division 2011 Holiday Party. Sunshine Group Homes, Inc. provides a clean, safe and structured environment for abused, abandoned, or neglected boys ranging from 5 to 18 years of age, and girls ranging from 4 to 17 years of age, who are in need of out-of-home placement.

The deadline for donations was November 26. But you may still contribute. Please make checks payable to State Bar of Arizona YLD and send to:
