The Hispanic Bar Association of Michigan (“HBAM”) is partnering with Latin Americans for Social Economic and Development, Inc. (“LA SED”) to help with their annual Operation Joy! LA SED will be delivering food baskets, jackets, and small toys to approximately 200 families in the area to spread warmth and hope to those in need.
In 1987 LA SED began a holiday program called Operation Joy to provide a little holiday cheer to families experiencing financial difficulty due to the closing of the Fleetwood plant, among others. That first year, Operation Joy provided modest food baskets to approximately 50 families. Today, LA SED will provide food, coats and small toys to approximately 200 families.
HBAM is looking for toy donations, specifically for babies, toddlers, and young teens. If you would like to donate a toy, De Armas and De Armas Law will have a donation drop off box from December 1 – December 18. You may either drop the toys off or have them delivered (e.g., via Amazon). Please see the flyer for more information.
