The San Fernando Valley Bar Association sponsored a Giving Tree during the 2011 holiday season to benefit the families of Haven Hills, a Canoga Park non-profit providing shelter and services for victims of domestic violence. The tremendous generosity of SFVBA members, staff and member benefit providers brought a little holiday cheer to 39 families.

On Dec. 24, 2011, the Riverside County Bar Association marked 10 years of helping low-income residents of Riverside County through RCBA’s Elves Program. Since 2001, RCBA’s elves have helped approximately 230 families, including 350 adults and more than 720 children. For 2011, the Money, Shopping, Wrapping and Delivery Elves brought gifts to 32 families, plus a holiday dinner for the 110 children and 49 adults.
