Donations to benefit area elementary school kids

Gumbiner Savett Inc. is changing up its holiday fundraising campaign from gathering toys to shoes.

The firm has held a toy drive for several years running, but when it came to their attention that the students of  Washington Elementary in Lynwood  were in dire need of shoe donations, collecting footwear became the focus of the 2020 charitable effort.

Located in one of the most impoverished areas of Los Angeles, the school is facing a much bigger challenge in soliciting essential items from the community during the pandemic.

To help that cause, Gumbiner will be collecting new shoes (sports and tennis shoes are preferred) for kids ages 3 to 12. Cash donations are also being accepted to allow the school to purchase the new shoes for students in need.

If you are interested in donating, please contact for more information. The firm and the kids of Washington Elementary appreciate your generosity!
