Clark Hill's Chicago Office Donates Numerous Gifts as Part of Dear Santa Letters Campaign
Each year, Clark Hill’s Chicago office participates–along with the Chicago Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Section and Direct Effect Charities–in a remarkable program called Dear Santa Letters. The letters to Santa are written by disadvantaged children from Chicago Public Schools, requesting one special gift. This year, the program was spearheaded by attorney Christopher Hopkins, with help from Tammy Braun and several others. The Chicago Bar Association program this year arranged for the delivery of a total of 615 presents, and Clark Hill was responsible for 100 of those.
“Words cannot express how grateful and blown away I am for the unbelievable support our office provided for the CBA Young Lawyers Section Dear Santa Letters Program,” said Hopkins. “The impact we’ve had on children who may have otherwise not experienced the joy of celebrating the holidays with presents is extraordinary.”
