Women Helping Women brings joy to children with multicultural and diverse ability dolls

For children who have experienced trauma, dolls are much more than mere toys. They are companions, enchanting figures who give love and comfort in times of need.

Knowing how significant dolls are in children’s lives, Jewish Child and Family Services (JCFS) incorporates dolls in their play therapy program as a way to help children cope with psychological, behavioral and family problems. Happy to support this wonderful cause, Chuhak & Tecson, P.C., recently held its Women Helping Women (WHW) Fall Mix-and-Mingle, where attendees donated multicultural and diverse ability dolls for children served by JCFS. The event brought together more than 150 women business leaders, entrepreneurs and strategic partners.

Throughout the event, attendees enjoyed wine, hors d’oeuvres and Chuhak & Tecson’s signature cocktails. Tea party sets and multicultural and diverse ability dolls reflected both the evening’s theme and partner. Welcome remarks were given by Chuhak & Tecson Principal Lindsey Markus, who was followed by Stacey Shor, vice president and chief development officer at JCFS.

The evening resulted in 167 multicultural and diverse ability dolls and nearly $1,000 in cash, checks and gift cards, all of which will aid children 10 years and younger with socialization skills, positive self-identification and respect for others through imaginative play.

Designed exclusively by Chuhak & Tecson women attorneys, each WHW Mix-and-Mingle benefits a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping women, or women and their children.
