Annual Toy Drive for The Rescue Mission of Roanoke

ALA members "get their elf on" to benefit families served by The Rescue Mission.

“Wrap stars” of the ALA come through again!


On December 11, 2018 members of the Western Virginia Chapter of Association of Legal Administrators (ALA) delivered the results of this year’s toy drive for families being helped by The Rescue Mission of Roanoke.

Empty shelves in the toy pantry at the mission were quickly filled with gifts for families to come “shop” for gifts for their children. ALA members then wrapped the gifts for them and stored them for delivery on Christmas morning, when approximately 50-60 children will attend a feast and receive their surprise gift. Gentry Locke raised approximately $850 in cash and several sacks of toys. Gentry Locke is still collecting donations during December, which is needed to ensure all the children can receive a gift. This is the third year Gentry Locke has participated in the Toy Drive.

Gentry Locke Executive Director Frank Pittard and Human Resource heroes Kelly Stimart and Anita Mattox were on hand to deliver, wrap, and share holiday cheer with their fellow law firm administrators.
