Attorney General Zoeller Stops by the Food Bank
Release Date - Mar 08, 2013
Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller stopped by the Food Bank today to kick off the fifth annual March Against Hunger Food Drive. The drive takes places throughout the month of March and pits attorney against attorney to see who can raise the most food and funds for those in need. Law firms big and small across the state sign up and win points for things like collecting food, raising money or volunteering at their local food bank. The points are then tallied at the end of the month and the firm that has the most points in each of the six size categories wins the "Attorney General's Cup." This year clients can also get involved by donating on behalf of their favorite attorney through the "Love a Lawyer" campaign. To find out more information, or to make a donation, visit http://www.marchagainsthunger.org. There is also still time for law firms to sign up to be a part of the program through the website.
Last year 51 law firms across the state participated and donated more than 11,400 pounds of food and $51,822. Since the drive started in 2009, food drive participants have donated more than 34,100 pounds of food and $127,167. Local firm Burke, Costanza and Carberry won the medium firm division last year.
