The Men’s Divorce Law Firm is the proud sponsor of three children at the 6th Annual Great Oaks Village Fun Day’s 2nd Annual Athletic Shoe Drive.
The event was held on Saturday, May 21, 2011 at the Great Oaks Village. For the last five years, the Young Lawyers Section (YLS) of the Orange County Bar Association (OCBA) has sponsored a fun day event for children that are residing at the Great Oaks Village in Orlando, Florida. The Great Oaks Village is a residential foster care group for approximately sixty (60) children from birth to 17 years old who have been removed from their home by the State of Florida due to abuse, neglect and/or abandonment.
There was be pizza and drinks, water games, arts and crafts, sno-cones, basketball and face painting for the children to enjoy. Lawyers and judges, young and old, from the surrounding areas attended the fun-filled day with these children to help make a difference in their lives.
While volunteering at the event in prior years, the volunteers noticed that many children had holes in their shoes and were unable to afford to buy new shoes. As a result, last year YLS, with the help of its members, several judges, Nike and Reebok, gave each child a new pair of athletic shoes at the fun day event.
