The Champaign County Bar Association will match the first $5000 that CCBA members donate to Lawyers Feeding Illinois. Checks will be accepted at the CCBA luncheon on February 28.
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.
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.
Learn more about the food bank serving your area here.
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.
