BOSTON (May 9, 2011) – The firm recently collected food and contributed financial donations in support of the second annual Legal Food Frenzy organized by Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley in partnership with numerous bar associations.
The firm was one of over 60 legal organizations recruited to participate in the relief effort that collected, in funds or food, the equivalent of over 377,000 pounds of food during the two-week initiative. The Legal Food Frenzy is a benevolent competition to benefit the four food banks in Massachusetts, which serve more than 800 food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters. The food and funds raised during the drive will provide over 290,000 meals to people in need.
“We were pleased to participate in this worthwhile effort to fight hunger in Massachusetts,” said Andy Weiner, who spearheaded the firm’s participation in the Food Frenzy. “The folks at our firm did a terrific job in providing food and contributing financial donations to help the cause.”
