During this program, the Orange County Chapter of the ABTL will be collecting gift cards in any denomination ($20 to $25 suggested) as well as monetary donations to support the children of Mercy House and help them enjoy the holiday season. Suggested gift cards include movie theatres, electronic stores, sporting goods stores, discount superstores and teen clothing stores.

We also will be collecting new stuffed animals for the Orange County Superior Court’s adoption program. The program provides newly adopted children with a stuffed animal at the time the adoption is finalized.
