Members of the Administration of Justice Club helped bring good cheer and joy to some needy and less fortunate children by visiting two community action and service agencies located in San Mateo and in San Francisco.  Club members worked hard for several weeks planning and putting together over 40 colorful and age-appropriate Easter holiday baskets filled with goodies such as chocolate eggs and toys donated by club members’ own funds, and they were delighted to have an opportunity to help put a smile on the faces of the children they contacted.

On Friday, March 25, the group first caravanned to Samaritan House located in the City of San Mateo.  There they were welcomed by the staff who directed the group to the children and their families who came there to obtain various types of community services.  The children were thrilled to receive the Easter baskets, and the parents were very grateful for the club’s efforts.

Next, the group traveled to San Francisco and visited Hamilton House, another social services organization for families.  Again, the group was well received as we handed out the colorful Easter baskets to the children.

At the heart of the AJ Club is a commitment for taking opportunities to do meaningful work in the community, serving others, and making a difference in our world.
