The L. David Shear Children’s Law Center will be hosting its 2019 Annual Holiday Party on Saturday, December 14, 2019, for the children we represent.

To make this celebration special, we need your help. We are looking for individuals and organizations willing to sponsor this event through financial contributions to help us pay for items (i.e. rentals, photo booth, face painters, craft supplies, and holiday gifts), or in-kind donations we can use as door prizes. We are also looking for food and drink donations. Bay Area Legal Services is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization and all contributions are tax-deductible.

If you would like to help with our holiday party, please contact Adrienne Godwin,, or Anny Castillo-Guzman, or call (813) 227-9050. We thank you in advance for your generous contribution. All sponsors will be recognized at the event and on the Bay Area Legal Services website as those who care and support children in need in our community.

Since opening our doors in 2006, the Children's Law Center has served over 1,000 clients, including children born addicted to drugs, children with special needs, children who have lived in unsafe and unsanitary conditions and children who have lost a sibling due to abuse by their caretaker. These children have been the victims of terrible experiences, but through the work of the Children's Law Center, their futures are bright with promise. Children now have loving families, safe places to call home and lives filled with hope. Learn more about the L. David Shear Children’s Law Center.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
