Toys for Tots

Toys for Tots is an organization run by the United States Marine Corps. that collects new, unwrapped toys to distribute as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community. In 2017, we became a Toys for Tots drop off location. We hope to spread awareness of this organization and encourage more local businesses to participate in the future.

Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit organization that works to provide nutritionally complete meals that are specifically formulated for malnourished children. Donations are used to fund the purchase of meal ingredients. Reidy Law Office volunteers to help pack meals which are donated to food partners around the world to feed hungry children.

It Must Work

It Must Work was founded by a Peace Corps veteran. Its mission is to raise funds to benefit non-governmental organizations in West African countries. These organizations offer social service activities that focus on supporting children and families through education, environmental preservation, health, and small business development. Reidy Law Office is proud to support this organization and its mission to help children and families in West Africa.

St. Jude’s Research Hospital

Through community fundraisers, Reidy Law Office helps raise funds to contribute to the mission of St. Jude’s Research Hospital to advance cures for pediatric catastrophic diseases. No child is denied treatment based on race, religion, or a family’s ability to pay. As family lawyers, we understand the importance of healthy children and families. As parents, we never want to think about our kids struggling and St. Judes helps to relieve the financial burdens on families so that they can focus solely on their children.
