Hunger: it's in every county.

Written by  Jon

I can not tell you how excited I am to be a part of the Lawyers Feeding Illinois Campaign. I was selected by ISBA President John Thies to serve on the committee for southeastern Illinois. I believe that southeastern Illinois and other rural areas of the State offer unique challenges for dealing with hunger. In my home area of Richland County, for example, over fifty percent (50%) of the school age children qualify for free or reduced lunches. This is just one indicator of the struggles that families are facing in smaller communities.

When we think of the hungry, we often think of urban centers. Too often, smaller communities in downstate Illinois are overlooked. The Lawyers Feeding Illinois Campaign is focused on addressing that concern by reaching out to attorneys from every county in the state for support for this important project. I encourage everyone to do their part because whether you are from a large community or a small town, hunger exists everywhere. Register a team to compete, or make a donation to support our efforts. By all of us doing our part, we can make a difference!

Jon Racklin is an attorney and member of the Lawyers Feeding Illinois Steering Committee

    The nectar solution can be achieved at home, utilizing a ratio of 4 parts water to at least
    one part white cane sugar. All you have to do is
    usually to finalize your bird tattoo design and earn a scheduled appointment with your tattoo artist.
    With hummingbird feeders gardens, yards, entryways, patios, and even grave sites and memorial settings can be
    easily brightened up and enjoyed of course and visitors.

    Cosmetic dentistry has been partt of every dental prawctice for
    the past 20 years. The reality is that people get the politicians they deserve, for the people themselves elect the politicians to
    the powerr and position they enjoy. Floss carefully befoe going to bed.
