Lawyers Unite to Give Thanks

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, it is important to remember that not everyone in Illinois can enjoy the tradition of a special meal with family and friends without the support and help of our local food depositories located throughout the State. Given the current economic climate, there is more demand than ever on our local food banks and they need our help.

Please join a special ISBA initiative “Lawyers Feeding Illinois” and help ensure that the Chicago area food banks are able to provide for those in need in 2013. Click here to learn more about what you and your firms can do.

Lynn Grayson is on the Lawyers Feeding Illinois Steering Committee.

Our Registration Countdown Checklist

Two weeks ago the Lawyers Feeding Illinois Steering Committee eagerly gathered in a conference room, checklists in hand: 

Were we ready?  Did the technology work?   Do we really think we can raise a million meals?  And will this all be fun??? 

We are proud to say all the answers were a resounding Yes! We are ready to go; all we need is you. Talk it up, gather a team, and challenge others to do the same. And tomorrow, November 5th, register to help the 1.9 million people in our state facing hunger. 

We're counting on you. Know why? You are on our checklist too.
