Connecting with People: Ankin Law Office Brings Holiday Cheer

Howard H. Ankin of Ankin Law Office in Chicago, Illinois, launched Operation Holiday Drive in December 2018 after a call from Pastor Kenyatta Smith of Another Chance Church. The Pastor wanted to provide toys to deprived children.

The Ankin Law Office organized six different sites that collected classic dolls, action figures, bikes, board games, hover boards, remote control cars, laptops, and Xboxes. In an area of Chicago well-known for unemployment, under-employment, and gun violence, the toy drive was greatly appreciated.  Ankin Law Office, along with other sponsors, met the goal of 10,000 toys collected.

All the toys were distributed at the Church on December 21, 2018.  Later that night, Howard reflected, “It’s one thing to feel good about collecting toys for families.  It’s another thing to be here tonight, meeting people in person, connecting with them, and seeing the excitement on their faces.”
