Heartwarming Video of Englewood School Children Opening Gifts at the 2016 Holiday Party for Lawyers Lend-A-Hand’s Tutoring Program
We put together a video montage of children receiving presents at the Lawyers Lend-A-Hand holiday party for its new tutoring program on Dec. 20, 2016, at CBA headquarters in Chicago. Sixteen children from Englewood, participants in the program, attended, along with their tutors.
Corboy & Demetrio donated gifts for the children and captured these heartwarming moments as the children were called up to the front, one by one, to accept their gifts. In the video, C&D’s Rita Planera, a Lend-A-Hand Board Member, and Wien DeStefano, are seen handing them out.
