WANTED: NEW STUFFED ANIMALS

The Riverside County Bar Association (RCBA) is collecting new stuffed animals for Riverside County foster children, to be donated to the Riverside Superior Court, Juvenile Division.

On average, sixty dependency cases are heard each day in the three juvenile courthouses (Riverside, Southwest and Indio). Foster children are ordered present at the detention hearing (the first hearing to establish the dependency case), as well as future hearings in which their attorneys require their presence. A minimum of sixty toys are provided weekly to the children who come to court.

Donation bins will be available at all section and general membership meetings, as well as in the RCBA office, during the month of November.

(Stuffed animals only; money donations cannot be accepted.)

We thank you for your generous donations
