Guardian ad Litem seeks holiday gifts for abused and neglected children

Local residents, organizations and community groups are being asked to sponsor abused, abandoned and neglected children this holiday season by donating new unwrapped toys, clothes or gift cards for those assigned to the Guardian ad Litem program.

Interested businesses and volunteers can contact the Guardian ad Litem 5th Judicial Circuit’s Lake County office, located at 418 W. Alfred St., in Tavares to request children’s wish cards. You can register or coordinate a drop-off with Denise Smith at (352) 343-2736 or Denise.Smith@gal.fl.gov. All donations must be received by Dec. 14.

The mission of the Guardian ad Litem Program is to promote and protect the best interests of abused and neglected children involved in dependency court proceedings through advocacy efforts of trained volunteers. The 5th Circuit Guardian Ad Litem Program serves Lake, Sumter, Hernando, Citrus and Marion counties. For more information, visit www.guardianadlitem5.org.
