BENEFITING: FEEDING ILLINOIS

EVENT: Lawyers Feeding Illinois

EVENT DATE: Mar 01, 2013

THE STORY:

More than 1.9 million people in Illinois are facing hunger. It’s true – and it’s unacceptable. Our state's lawyers are stepping up to the challenge.

DCBA's goal is to raise 100,000 meals or $20,000!  The DCBA Foundation and Board are helping reach that goal by agreeing to match donations by the DCBA team up to $7,500!  Because of this, your donation has an even greater impact!
 

Thanks to the leadership of Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA) President John E. Thies and Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, the legal community is mobilizing to raise a million meals to help our state's hungry families.

 

Your support goes a long way. Because of the incredible efficiency of the Feeding Illinois food bank network,

every $1 we raise will provide 5 meals.
 

And because of a generous gift from our partner Attorneys' Title Guaranty Fund (ATG), 100% of all processing fees for online donations up to $200,000 are covered! So even more of your gift gets passed on to help your food bank serve hungry families.

Anyone may donate at any time to help us reach our ambitious goal. Spread the word far and wide!

How it works: Lawyers Feeding Illinois Begins February 18th, 2013 and ends March 1st, 2013. Teams of lawyers, firms, law schools, and other legal organizations will compete for points by collecting monetary and food donations during the campaign. At the end of the campaign, winners will be declared in several award categories.
 

Here how points will be awarded: (Learn more about why we award points this way.)
 

  • 1 point is given for every pound of food collected.
  • 5 points are given for every dollar raised.
  • 100 points are given if an organization registers by December 17.
  • 100 points are given as a onetime bonus if your organization delivers your collected food to yourdesignated drop-off location.
