A Chance to Give Back: The Christmas Street Stockings Event

Uncategorized

The holiday season is often thought of as a season where we receive presents. But it’s also a time of giving—and most especially, giving back to those in our community.

Help us help others this holiday season! Each year, we participate in the annual Christmas Street Stockings event, and this year is no different. We’d love to have you join us.

A Look at the Details

During this event, we put together stockings for the homeless that are filled with items that are useful and helpful to them. 

You can help contribute by donating any unopened items you think a homeless person may find useful. Some ideas include:

  • Socks
  • Underwear
  • Hats
  • Food bars
  • Toothpaste and toothbrushes
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Soap
  • Shampoo
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • First-aid kits
  • Paperback books
  • Magazines

You can donate items at our office at 1620 Fifth Avenue, Suite 600, in San Diego, from now until Dec. 7.

Every little bit you can share makes a big difference in the lives of the less fortunate during the holiday season!

For more information about donating to the Christmas Street Stockings event, call (619) 234-6123.

 

The Importance of the CFLS Designation

A Certified Family Law Specialist, or CFLS, is an attorney who has obtained certification in the standards of California family law and demonstrated optimal legal competence. Attorneys who obtain this certification have specific expertise in all aspects of family law, which includes divorce or the dissolution of marriagechild and spousal support, child custody, and temporary restraining orders, among other areas of emphasis.

Not every attorney practicing family law has obtained this certification. In fact, the designation remains relatively rare—there are fewer than 2,000 CFLS attorneys in California and fewer than 200 in San Diego.
