The Young Lawyers Section of LAKC would like to thank all the participants of its annual Skippy & Skivvies fund drive to benefit the children and families at Operation Breakthrough. About 30 area firms participated. Thanks to you, the LAKC-YLS was able to fill Operation Breakthrough’s (near-empty) pantry with 20,346 ounces (1,271 pounds) of peanut butter, 3,728 diapers, 3,214 wipes, 438 pairs of underwear, and 173 pairs of socks. Operation Breakthrough will also be able to replenish its pantry throughout the year through your generous monetary donations totaling about $10,300.
