The #ATU is changing lives on a daily basis and this toy drive will do the same for so many children from various families this Christmas.
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) December 15, 2015
Frank Walker, founder of Frank Walker Law, teams up with Omega Psi Phi fraternity brother and fellow West Virginia University alum Christopher Edmonds, of Athletic Trauma Unit (#ATU), for a toy drive initiative to benefit families in the Mon Valley area of Pittsburgh.
“This will be our second annual toy drive for families that need assistance,” said Edmonds, founder and director of #ATU. “Donations will be distributed between three Christmas parties that we sponsor for families who have been identified by their local community centers as having a financial need.”
The monetary donation from Pittsburgh attorney Walker to #ATU helps Edmonds and his group purchase additional toys and gifts for the toy drive. This year there are a total of 226 children registered for these toy drives. Edmonds and #ATU aim to provide a gift for the children from 0-13 years of age, as well as provide a holiday meal and crafts for the entire family.
When approached by Edmonds about a potential sponsorship, Walker did not hesitate to provide the donation. “I am thankful to be in a position to give back to the community and I’m proud to do so through the organization of my friend and fellow Omega brother Chris,” said Walker. “The #ATU is changing lives on a daily basis and this toy drive will do the same for so many children from various families this Christmas.”
Scheduled toy drives included the North Braddock Cares Winter Festival on December 6 and the upcoming toy drives at Rankin Palisades Youth Program on Thursday, December 17, from 5:30-8 p.m. at the Rankin Christian Center and the Rankin Christian Center After School Program on Wednesday, December 23, from 4-6 p.m., 230 3rd Ave., Rankin, PA.
