YLD Invites All MCB Members to Participate in the Angel Tree Project

The MCB Young Lawyers Division is once again pairing with Salvation Army for its Angel Tree Program. This program is an excellent opportunity to provide gifts for children who come from low-income families and/or live in foster care or group homes who might not otherwise receive gifts.

This year, the YLD is inviting all MCB members to participate in the project to increase the impact in our community and provide even more gifts to children in need.
