San Fernando Valley, California – Attorney Barry P. Goldberg donated $1,000 on December 12, 2016 to the LA Family Housing (LAFH) – Christmas Gift Card Program as part of his law firm’s December Charity Donate-a-Thon.
Mr. Goldberg recently met the director at a Blanket the Homeless Program with the San Fernando Valley Bar Association, of which he is the Treasurer. The director shared that the LA Family Housing facility was “transitional” for 90 days and that the organization has been placing families in reasonably priced housing around the Valley after the 90 days. There are hundreds of local families that are scraping by to make rent and buy food, and Christmas gifts for children are at the bottom of the list. The LAFH is trying to get $20 gift cards to give to the parents for each child that is part of the placement, so the parents can provide a Christmas gift.
Mr. Goldberg was deeply touched by the organization’s efforts and knew he had to help sharing that “so many of us are so fortunate and have not had to think twice about getting our kids more than they need for Christmas. But, what about those struggling parents?”
Thanks in part to Mr. Goldberg’s generous donation, hundreds of San Fernando Valley children will receive gifts from Santa this Christmas.
