It has been found by the National Education Association, that children with more access to different types of reading materials are higher in reading proficiency, and children that read more at home have higher math scores. Reading is such an important skill and habit that can help shape the future of a child. Through donations to the YLS Barrister’s Book Drive, you can help mold the mind of a child in the Guardian ad Litem program and open the door to different worlds, new experiences, and endless knowledge for them.
Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith is proud to be collecting donations in support of the Young Lawyer’s Section of the Palm Beach County Bar Association’s Barrister’s Book Drive. The Firm will be collecting donations:

- gift cards in small increments
All donations will be donated to the Guardian ad Litem of Palm Beach County for distribution to the kids in their program.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, there are over 400,000 children in foster care in the United States. For these children in foster care and others that have been abused, abandoned, or neglected, it is programs like the Guardian ad Litem of Palm Beach County that help to be the voice for the children in court and ensure that they are put in the best possible situation.
