Georgia attorneys helping feed hungry kids in South Georgia
VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Attorneys in Georgia are teaming up with food banks, including Second Harvest in Valdosta, to help fight hunger.
The campaign is called the "Georgia Legal Food Frenzy". This is the third year the campaign has been held.
Attorneys across the state will have donation bins in their offices to collect food, which the food banks will use to help feed children during the summer to help make up for the meals the kids won't get from school.
"Last year, 15,000 attorneys participated. They collected 842,000 pounds of food," pointed out Doug Griner, Donor Services Director at Second Harvest. "It's another avenue that we can tap into various resources in the community because all of those attorneys have different connections in various places within their communities. That helps to draw in more attention, awareness, and this food product into the food bank association."
The campaign officially kicks off on April 21st and continues until May 2nd.
