Dave and Jennifer Caskey of Caskey & Caskey and Associates at Strand Hill Properties are pleased to announce a Holiday Toy Drive in support of the wonderful efforts put forth by the Richstone Family Center in support of local families. The Richstone Center is dedicated to treating and preventing child abuse and trauma by strenghening and educating families in order to prevent violence in families, schools and communities.
The Richstone Family Center is a non-profit social services organization that has been doing important work in our South Bay communities since 1974. Richstone continues to be one of the most progressive centers for trauma-focused treatment and the prevention of child abuse in Los Angeles County and the first Southern California recipient of a Blue Ribbon Affiliate designation from Parents as Teachers, recognizing Richstone's commitment to providing quality services to kids and their families from communities in L.A. County’s South Bay and neighboring South L.A. areas.
The Caskeys, long-time supporters of the Richstone programs, decided to organize a holiday toy drive to benefit those families that participate within the many outstanding programs offered by the Richstone Center. "Richstone is near and dear to Dave and I.", says Jennifer Caskey, "We hope to help brighten the holidays for these wonderful families."
