Food Frenzy passes $19,000 barrier
4:02 pm, April 26th, 2013
Nearing halftime of the Legal Food Frenzy, Georgia’s legal community has raised $19,044 online for the state’s food banks.
As of 3:50 p.m., five legal organizations had raised more than $1,000: Kilpatrick, Townsend & Stockton, $3,605; Alston & Bird, $1,965; Georgia Department of Law, $1,470; Office of DeKalb Solicitor-General, $1,200 and King & Spalding, $1,175.
Showing that small donations can add up, another 31 organizations had raised between $10 and $995, totalling $10,959, or more than half of the current online total.
The funds’ impact will be multiplied by at least seven, in that food banks say they can stretch $1 into at least $7 of food. The resources help feed hungry people–especially children who in the coming summer months will not be able to rely on food assistance at school.
The Frenzy’s goal is to raise $55,000 in online donations by the end of next week.
