This year Fitch Even Chicago office attorneys and legal professionals once again responded to letters to Santa written by needy Chicago students attending pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade. The letters were collected from a participating school and distributed by Chicago-based nonprofit Direct Effect Charities through their Letters to Santa program.
Fitch Even participants claimed one or more letters, purchased the requested toys and other items, and brought them to the office where volunteers spent a few hours packing and wrapping all the gifts before delivering them to Direct Effect for distribution at the designated school. We were moved by the dozens of brightly illustrated handwritten letters we received and grateful for the opportunity to add to Direct Effect’s total of well over 100 thousand letters answered in the past 18 years.
