Easter Fun and Toy Organization Efforts Achieved by Phillips Law Group Volunteers

At Phillips Law Group, we are committed to going out in the community and doing good, whether we are working to help the homeless population, foster children, low-income mothers, or many other marginalized groups we work with through partner organizations. In March, we fulfilled both Easter fun and toy organization efforts while working with Maggie’s Place and The Foster Alliance, two nonprofits we have an ongoing community outreach relationship with. 

Annual Easter Egg Hunt at Maggie’s Place

For the second time, Phillips Law Group sponsored the Maggie’s Place annual Easter egg hunt. 

At an event that took place on March 23, Phillips Law Group volunteers hid 1,500 eggs – which volunteers from the firm had previously stuffed with candy – then helped the kids that Maggie’s Place serves to find the eggs in a delightful egg hunt! Maggie’s Place divided the groups by ages 0-3, 4-7, 8-12, and teens, and let the children have a fantastic time finding as many eggs as possible.

“We had as much fun as the kids, in hiding and helping them. It was a fun time for sure,” Community Outreach Assistant Sharon Mews said. 

The firm also provided Easter buckets and cute Easter pouches for the older kids to enjoy. Plus, the Easter Bunny was in attendance, which gave the kids the opportunity to dance and take photos with him. All in all, it was a terrific event that Phillips Law Group was happy to help with for the second year in a row.

Toy Organization at The Foster Alliance

On March 21, a handful of Phillips Law Group volunteers had “probably the most fun that our team has had” at a Foster Alliance community service event, Sharon revealed. 

The volunteers helped inventory stuffed animals both large and small, which the Community Outreach Assistant noted, “may sound simple, but there were 6 boxes that were about 5 feet by 5 feet square, filled to the top with stuffed animals” making it quite the feat. In fact, Sharon had to climb into one of the boxes and start to pull the stuffed animals from the bottom to get to them all!

“It was hilarious and it bought out the kid in us all,” she said. 

And most importantly, the volunteers on hand got through 4 of the 6 gigantic boxes of plush toys, both small and large, likely totaling hundreds of toys. Even these events that aren’t as hands-on with the individuals we are helping make a huge difference to them in the end; in this case, it will be easier for The Foster Alliance to provide stuffed animals to foster children in need thanks to the efforts of Phillips Law Group volunteers.
