Smith, Gaskill & Shenkman, P.A., Collects Toys for Local Charities

 

Smith, Gaskill & Shenkman, P.A., partnered with Operation Hope for their annual “Keeping Dreams Alive” toy drive! The firm was proud to have a collection bin inside of the office and excited to welcome past and present clients, friends, and the community in to drop off their donations. The turn out was wonderful and the firm would like to personally thank everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to stop by and donate to such a worthy cause. The grand finale to the drive came Saturday night when Managing Partner Donald R. Smith hosted his annual Boat Parade Party! He offered to throw a bash to remember, with just one request…all guests were asked to bring a gift for the children of Operation Hope. The results were OUTSTANDING! Over 150 guests arrived happily with gifts for the underprivileged youth in our area! There were so many generous donations we were able to give a sizeable contribution to Toys for Tots as well! All Partners, Attorneys, and Staff were at the party and proud to see how successful the event was. This morning the Personal Injury Team gathered the gifts and hand delivered them to Operation Hope where Mr. Ken Bowers and his team were overwhelmingly grateful. The toys will be distributed to the children this Saturday at Operation Hope, stay tuned for photos of the children receiving their gifts. Thank you again for helping us make this a success!
