Oakland Mayor’s Community Toy Drive
During the last two years, Boxer & Gerson LLP is proud to have been part of the Oakland Mayor’s Community Toy Drive which is in its’ 30th year. The goal is to collect new, unwrapped, non-violent toys to distribute to Oakland children in financial need.
Last year, the toy drive collected over 6,000 toys. Boxer & Gerson LLP helped spread the word to the workers’ compensation legal community and made the toy drive a new office holiday tradition whereby employees gather on a specific date and shared hot chocolate and cookies with toy donors. Both years to date have ended with an overflowing Conference Room full of toys including dolls, basketballs, teddy bears to name a few. Al Lujan, the Coordinator for the city has commented in both years that Boxer & Gerson LLP has collected more toys than any “company” he works with!
The firm looks forward to many more years of helping Oakland’s children through this program.
