Georgia State Bar Assists In Statewide Food Drive

Thursday, March 22, 2012 - 11:46

 

The State Bar of Georgia and its Young Lawyers Division are partnering with attorney general Sam Olens and the Georgia Food Bank Association to organize the Georgia Legal Food Frenzy, a statewide food drive that will run from Monday, April 23 to Friday, May 4.

Businesses and firms may enter a competition for the “Attorney General's Cup” while assisting their local communities. Participants may go to the Georgia Legal Food Frenzy website at http://galegalfoodfrenzy.org/. The website provides links to the contest rules as well as city representatives to answer questions.

“In the current economic conditions with grinding unemployment, over half a million Georgia kids live in poverty and one out of six Georgians lacks access to adequate food,” said State Bar President Ken Shigley. “We in the legal profession have been blessed to be a blessing to others. I urge all members of the legal community in Georgia to help our less fortunate neighbors through the Legal Food Frenzy. Give until it feels good.”
