Lake Oswego, OR, December 12, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Did you know there are nearly 20,000 children living in foster care in the Northwest at any given time?
With this in mind, Tom D'Amore, managing partner of D'Amore Law Group, has announced that his firm, along with several other local firms, is collecting toys and gift cards for children in foster care through Friday, Dec. 13.
Kids -- from infants to teens -- enter foster care with few or no possessions. They’re away from everything familiar, and the holiday season can be particularly hard. While foster parents are paid a monthly stipend, those funds are totally insufficient to meet all of the needs of a growing child.
But, you can help. The D'Amore Law Group is inviting anyone to stop by the office (at 4230 Galewood St., Lake Oswego) and bring a toy or gift card for a child who really needs it.
For those who cannot make it to the office or for more information, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the amount of your commitment; the firm will follow up with a link for donation completion.
In addition to the D'Amore Law Group, the following groups have stepped up to help as well: Oregon Trial Lawyers Association, Davis Law Offices (Portland), Littler Mendelson (Portland), Gresham Injury Law Center (Gresham), Parks Law Offices (Portland) and Kehoe Law LLC (Portland).
