The YLD Steps Up!

Written by 

Imagine walking into a massive warehouse that has food stacked to the rafters. This is what members of the Young Lawyers Division Council saw on October 27th when they volunteered at the Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD) in support of the Lawyers Feeding Illinois Campaign. John and I joined the YLD and we all had an amazing morning working together!  In less than two hours, our group sorted and packed 5,315 pounds of bread.  Pallet after pallet was piled high until finally, 14 pallets of bread were ready to be distributed to agencies that feed the hungry. However, this is only a small percentage of the 64 million pounds of food annually distributed by the GCFD. 

The needs are dire but the opportunities to ensure that food reaches the tables of the hungry are great.  Your help is needed now - please register and join the ISBA in this fight to end hunger!

Terry Thies is the Chair of Lawyers Feeding Illinois.
