This year, as one of Fitch Even’s charitable initiatives, Chicago office attorneys and legal professionals responded to letters written by needy Chicago children 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, bought the requested toys and other items, and brought them to the office where volunteers spent a few hours packing and wrapping all the gifts, which were subsequently delivered to the designated school. We were touched by the many poignant letters we received, and happy to add to Direct Effect’s total of well over 100 thousand letters answered in the past 17 years.
