Supporting Local and Giving Back in South OC

Here at Melody Smith & Associates, we are huge fans of supporting local businesses and also firmly believe in giving back. Especially this year and holiday season, we are making a concerted effort to do as much as we can in our Laguna Hills community and neighboring areas.

There are many ways to support local businesses and organizations and give back all year long. Whether it’s through volunteering your time, purchasing meals from a locally owned restaurant, shopping for handmade goods at a small business, serving meals or donating to local shelters, adopting a family for Christmas, and SO many more. 

Today, we wanted to talk a little bit more about how we’re supporting local and giving back and want to invite you to join in! 

For 10 years, Melody Smith & Associates has hosted a toy drive for Toys for Tots, and this year is no different! We’re even including a support local movement this year. We’ve planted donation boxes at several locations in our South OC communities. Donate toys to children in need AND grab a meal to go!

Here are a few locations and options to join in.
