Disability Attorneys of Michigan adopt kids for holiday gift giving

On Friday, Dec. 20, Disability Attorneys of Michigan is partnering with The 313 Project to help provide a Christmas to more than 45 children in need.

This year marks the 3rd year Disability Attorneys of Michigan has participated in adopt-a-child holiday efforts, providing clothes and toys to more than 100 children.

Each child will receive a winter jacket, an outfit, shoes, hat, gloves, and a toy. Disability Attorneys of Michigan will also provide food and craft projects for the families to do together with the volunteers.

These families receive services through Latino Family Services Inc. (LFS). LFS was founded in 1971 in Southwest Detroit primarily to empower the Latino Community, growing to include children, at-risk teenagers, and senior citizens of multi-cultural backgrounds.

LFS' clothing and food pantries alone service more than 600 families from the Metro-Detroit area each month. LFS also offers a substance abuse clinic that treats patients referred by the City of Detroit and the 26th District Court.

For additional information about the adopt-a-child program, including how to become a sponsor, call 586-596-4083 or email erika@damichigan.com.
